SATURDAY, May 14th – National Dance Like a Chicken Day*
* Though often topping the polls for the most annoying song of all time, “The Chicken Dance” has become a tradition at Oktoberfests across the world.  The Oktoberfest Zinzinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio, holds a “World’s Largest Chicken Dance” annually. There were 48,000 participants in 1994. Despite being associated with a distinctly German tradition, the Chicken Dance song is actually Swiss. It was created by Werner Thomas from Davos, Switzerland in the 1950s. It was called “Der Ententanz”, or the Duck Dance.

SUNDAY, May 15th – National Chocolate Chip Day*
*National Chocolate Chip celebrates one of the most popular ingredients in cooking – the chocolate chip.  The origin of chocolate chips was said to be in the 1930s and was invented by a person called Ruth Graves in Wakefield. In her cookbook titled, Ruth Wakefield’s Toll House, Tried and True Recipes, she published a recipe of the name “Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies”. It was said she accidentally discovered chocolate chips when she added chocolate to dough expecting them to melt and lose their shape, but ended up with drops of chocolate, giving her cookies a delicious texture switch between the cookie and the chocolate.
