History Of Summersgiving
Robert Solomon and his friends began organising Thanksgiving BBQ’s for themselves during the summer season. They’d spend the day having good food and drinks and just enjoying each other’s company, and Summersgiving was born. In 2019, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed Summersgiving to be observed on the Saturday after the Summer Solstice annually.
Tap Dance Day officially began in 1989 and celebrates the heritage and origins of the dance genre, along with the notable tap dancing greats, including Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, the Mark Brothers, and more.
It may or may not surprise you to learn that frog jumping contests are held frequently nationwide, most notably at the Calaveras County Fair. In fact, this fair is the reason May 13th is Frog Jump Day!
