Happy Dance Like a Chicken Day!
Yep, today, 14 May, actually is Dance Like a Chicken Day!
And the Chicken Dance originally roosted right here in Switzerland!
I know, right?
Chick out these Fun Fowl Factoids:
🐔In the 1950's a young Swiss named Werner Thomas penned the melody for what would become the Chicken Dance.
🐔The original name was 'Der Ententanz' which translates to 'The Duck Dance'.
🐔In the 1970's the song (and its signature dance moves) came to the United States where September Music Corporation acquired the rights and Stanley Mills added lyrics in English.
🐔It wasn't until the 1980's that the Chicken Dance got the world wide love and admiration it deserves!
On the National Today website, where I found all these egg-citing factoids, the number one suggestion on how to celebrate National Dance Like a Chicken Day is:
