This is a PowerPoint presentation that can be done either as a live talk or as a zoom presentation. It looks at the origins of those New Year resolutions that many of us start with the best of intentions, but do they last. Why do some people worry about Friday the 13th ?, what is its significance. Why do we send Valentine cards?, and who started it all and why is a four leaf clover suppposed to be lucky? All this will be answered and we will also have a few laughs along the way.
