Underground America Day, Dance Like a Chicken Day, more

May 14th, 2013, is Underground America Day, Dance Like a Chicken Day, Shavuot, Independence Day (Paraguay), and National Buttermilk Biscuit Day.

Underground America Day honors North Americans who live under the ground rather than on it. Architect Malcolm Wells conjured up (conjured down?) this holiday in 1974. Wells states, "I woke up one day to the fact that the Earth's surface was made for living plants, not industrial plants."

Are you behind the times, still living above ground? Oh well. Make the best of things and do the Chicken Dance on terra firma. Happy Dance like a Chicken Day!

In 2013 Shavuot, the Feast of the Weeks, begins May 14th at sundown and ends May 16th at sundown. Shavuot  means "weeks," as in the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot. During this time God re-gives the Torah and Jews renew their acceptance of God's gift.

Paraguay observes Independence Day on May 14th.

Today is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day. Can't beat 'em with sausage gravy.
