  Little Red Riding Hood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The origins of the Little Red Riding Hood story can be traced to oral versions from various European countries and more than likely preceding the 17th century, of which several exist, some significantly different from the currently-known, Grimms-inspired version.
Her red hood could represent the bright sun which is ultimately swallowed by the terrible night (the wolf).
This was apparently because Little Red Riding Hood was shown carrying alcohol (presumably wine) to her grandmother, and some were worried about the inclusion of alcohol in a children's story.

 Little Red Riding Hood
Perrault was the first to write down "Little Red Riding Hood," but the tragic ending of this version has caused some to question whether it has a genuine folk origin.
Shavit argues that it is a satire about "the city gentleman who does not hesitate to take advantage of the poor village girl"; she notes an eroticism in the description of the little girl as a specific element encouraging the satiric reading, and the moral at the end tends to reinforce it.
Zipes suggests that the red cap (chaperon) signified the village girl's nonconformity, in that such caps were worn by the aristocracy and middle classes, not the peasantry.

She was a happy, merry little child, with a smile and a gentle word for everybody, and so you may easily believe that everybody loved her, and was glad to catch a glimpse of her golden curls and her scarlet cloak as she tripped along, singing, under the green boughs.
It seemed very dark in there after the bright sunlight outside, and all Red Riding-Hood could see was that the window-curtains and the bed-curtains were still drawn, and her grandmother seemed to be lying in bed with the bed-clothes pulled almost over her head, and her great white-frilled nightcap nearly hiding her face.
