Superstitions are widespread and every culture have their own. Plan a 'Superstition Bash' event to discuss and explore superstitions from around the world. The elderly will enjoy recalling and reminiscing about superstitions from their childhood.

Very good work on this program. Very thorough, and many good ideas tying into superstitious events. Also liked the idea to build in poetry, for poetry month!

Hi Talita.
Our clients were absolutely fascinated in The Ides of March & superstitions. They came up with others, many from their parents/childhood so it was a great discussion topic. Many thanks for sharing.

That's great to hear Sandy, thanks for letting us know. We will find some new and interesting stories to add to the superstitions theme.

I bring along an old saying every week, such as 'mad as a 2 bob watch'. We talk about what it means when people say it, and whereabouts it came from or originated. Interesting information can be found online, and things that are common to say now often come from the 1500s. Mad as a hatter came from the potent oils they used to treat their leather with.

It never ceases to amaze me with the different activities on this web site. Once again I never thought of the Ides of March. This is a comprehensive activity and thank you for writing this. I am grateful for this site as it makes our job that much easier the variety is fantastic and I am re energised every time I log one.

I am already planning for the 15th March.
