Fun Holiday – Dance Like a Chicken Day

On May 14, is Dance Like a Chicken Day. Also known as Chicken Dance Day, the goofy holiday celebrates the silly dance that is accompanied by the Chicken Song or the Chicken Dance Song.

The chicken dance is a goofy, but fun party song and dance.

The song, sometimes also known as the Birdie Song, was composed in the 1950s by Swiss composer Werner Thomas. Accompanied by a series of movements, the song soon became popular in the West, especially in the United States, where it was performed at parties and weddings.

The dance mimics the movements of a chicken and includes flapping of arms and wriggling of the body.

How to Celebrate?

  • Have a chicken dance dance-off.
  • Get together with friends and organize a chicken dance flash mob. Just make sure you get the requisite paperwork and permissions before you do it.

Did You Know…

…that chickens were originally domesticated for the purposes of cockfighting and not for food?
