Afternoon Tea and Superstitions

Do you feel lucky? Almost everyone participates in some level of superstition; whether you knock on wood, wear a special shirt on Game Day, blow out birthday candles, or choose not to walk under a ladder, it's a safe gamble that you are more superstitious than you think. But where did this lore come from? Why does it stick? And how, in modern time, is it  more prevalent than ever? Let's adventure through the past and uncover the truth of why black cats are 50% less adoptable, how an electric fan can steal your soul, and what to do with those darn tree spirits, as we examine the origin of the stories of common superstitions. It's definitely guaranteed you will leave with a new perspective. Join Rissa Miller and learn all of this and more after a full afternoon tea prepared by Nancy Reppert
