It's Taco Tuesday - Dance Like a Chicken day.
Dance Like a Chicken day is observed each year on May 14th.
This is an entertaining day from start to finish! Everyone has probably danced the “Chicken Dance” at least once in their lifetime. This silly fun song is popular at wedding dances, Oktoberfest, and other celebrations. The song gets people of all ages up and moving on the dance floor.
Written in the 1950s by Werner Thomas, a Swiss accordionist, the Chicken Dance didn’t even make it to the United States until sometime in the 1970s. The Chicken Dance is associated with polkas or oom-pah-pah music. Originally written with the name Der Ententanz (The Duck Dance) it was rumored to have been written as a drinking song for Oktoberfest. The song’s name was later changed to Vogeltanz (The Bird Dance).
HOW TO OBSERVE DANCE LIKE A CHICKEN DAY
The day should be celebrated by listening to the song and doing the dance. Watch videos to make sure you have learned the song properly, so you don't look foolish in public because you are doing it wrong. Get as many of your friends together as you can to do the dance.
