I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate one of the most important holidays in September, today—September 20. I’m sure you know what it is, right? No? It’s Chicken Dance Day! Hey, it’s good to learn new things.
Bet your Chicken Dance Day history is sparse, and I know you want to know stuff. Back in 1994, the Crown Prince of Bavaria visited Cincinnati, Ohio and joined in an Oktoberfest party, or die Wiesn to locals. The combination of beer, Schweinebraten, and pretzels of course inspires anyone to dance en masse. As chickens. Okay, maybe that’s only in Cincinnati. Whatever. I don’t judge. This particular celebration on September 20, 1994, included the world’s largest chicken dance—over 40,000 people. Apparently, some royalty aren’t afraid to flap their feathers.
So celebrate and do some dancing. Come on, it’s Friday! Let loose. And if you don’t know how to perform, you can learn. You’ve got choices:
Where’s the craziest place you’ve done the Chicken Dance?
