This Is Dance Like A Chicken Day!!

Mike Simons

This day is set aside for everyone who enjoys doing the "Chicken Dance". All you have to do is dance like a chicken. It's become a tradition at nearly every wedding reception to play and dance the Chicken Dance. It's pretty much guaranteed to get folks of all ages up on the floor dancing and mingling. Best of all, it puts a big smile on everybody's face.

Whatever you do today, please don't pass up this priceless opportunity to do the "Chicken Dance".

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
