Today we celebrate:

Dance Like A Chicken Day – You all know the Chicken Dance, I'm sure. Well, loosen up your elbows because today you'll be dancing like a chicken all day long.  Then you’ll get the song stuck in your head so you’ll be dancing like a chicken in your dreams all night long as well.

National Buttermilk Biscuit Day – Yum, these are my favorite biscuits.  Flaky, buttery, deliciousness would be a great addition to dinner this evening.

The Stars And Stripes Forever Day – On this day in 1897, John Philip Sousa first performed “The Stars and Stripes Forever” which he had written on Christmas Day a few months before.  Later that year the United States Congress made the song the official National March of the USA.  This is a day to revel in a spirit of nationality. Let our stars and stripes fly forever.

Underground America Day – Created in 1974 by Malcolm Wells, this is a day to think about the ground. It may surprise you to know that many people live within it instead of on it like the rest of us and it is definitely something to consider if you find yourself thinking that you would really like to have more grass to mow and more room to plant a vegetable garden surrounded by flowers. Mr. Wells has some creative celebration ideas you may like to consider at his website.

To celebrate today, dance like a chicken and then play “Stars and Stripes Forever” over and over while you are digging your new underground home, pausing only to eat buttermilk biscuits.
