The best calendar you’ll ever see! 122



View Profile

A German retirement community created a calendar where seniors amazingly recreated famous movie scenes.

The Contilia Retirement Group in Essen, Germany, made what is probably the best calendar ever and, according to German press, 5000 calendars were printed. They were given out to residents of the centre along with relatives and staff.

The calendar models were interviewed about the project and said it was a tonne of fun to dress up as their favourite actors with help by professional stylists and photographers to make sure everything looked as cool as possible.

Unbelievably, the oldest senior involved with the calendar was 98 years olds!

Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional, and as they say:

If you haven’t grown up by the time you’re sixty, then you damn well don’t have to!
