National Dance Like A Chicken Day

As a frequent wedding attender and dance aficionado, I am all about the group dances. They get everyone out on the dance floor, they are typically pretty easy to do, everyone looks equally ridiculous doing them, and they’re just darn good, clean fun.

I say:

“Blare the hokey-pokey!”

“Unleash the Macarena!”

“Where is a fun place to stay? THE YMCA!”

Take a moment today to honor a song that transcends weddings and finds itself suitable for any age, gender or roller-skating rink. Today is National Dance Like A Chicken Day.

Big props to the Lawrence Welk Show (and accordions in general) for the video.

Originally titled “Der Ententanz” (The Duck Dance), the Chicken Dance was created by Swiss accordion player (and well known bad-ass) Werner Thomas of Davos, Switzerland in the 1950’s.

So while you may not own a full size chicken suit (although, I’m sure a disturbing number of people probably do), make sure you do the Chicken Dance today with all the funky chickens across the globe doing likewise.

Quicken Loans Corporate Headquarters Hosts Frosty Fest 2009

More than 1,500 Quicken Loans team members and their loved ones took to the streets of Detroit on Sunday, December 13, to participate in the companys annual Frosty Fest celebration. The event, which was previously hosted at Quicken Loans' Livonia headquarters, was moved to our future home in Detroit. 

Frosty Fest featured complimentary ice skating and skate rental at the Campus Martius rink, live reindeer, a dog sled team, photos with Santa Claus, a craft tent where kids created holiday gifts for their parents and a warming center inside the Compuware building that had snacks, crafts and a Nintendo Wii for families to enjoy. The event was intended to help our team members spend a fun-filled memorable day in our new home city, while also familiarizing themselves with the area and visiting local businesses.

A special thanks to everyone who helped make Frosty Fest 2009 happen. We can't wait until next year!

Ringing of the Bells, Muppet Style

Alright, so who doesn't love the Muppets? My favorite character was always Gonzo, who, regrettably, is not in this video. However, Beaker and Animal are in it and they are pretty cool too. The other character in the video, for those who don’t know the Muppet characters by heart is The Swedish Chef.

Once I saw this video I knew that I had to share it. It brings together childhood memories and the holiday season. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

If this article spurs your interest to see who some of the other characters are in The Muppet Show, like it did me, visit this link.
