World Lindy Hop Day

If youâ??ve been thinking that there just arenâ??t enough reasons to cavort around a dance floor to the boisterous sounds of 1920s jazz, then you will no doubt become a fan of Lindy Hop Day. After a decline in popularity in the 1950s, this form of swing music is back and infecting more and more followers with its undeniable vitality.

Itâ??s an energetic dance that originated in black communities in Harlem, in New York City. If you want a true experience, try to seek out a venue with live big-band jazz. Itâ??s fun, frenetic, occasionally frenzied, and is likely to leave you exhausted, but donâ??t worry: you only need to do it once every year. Some say the name commemorates Charles Lindberghâ??s 1927 â??hopâ?? across the Atlantic in a plane â?? the first time that feat was accomplished alone â?? but letâ??s hope he wasnâ??t doing this dance when he was at the controls!

Blueberry Cheesecake Day

Cheesecake is an institution in itself. The treat’s origins go back to Antiquity, but Americans have truly made it their own by adding a variety of flavors. Blueberry Cheesecake Day is here to commemorate the most common topping which combines the ancient tradition of creamy goodness with the modern love of healthy natural berries.

Cheesecake is as widespread as it is versatile. The recipes and ingredients vary from region to region. Europeans use ricotta or curd cheese which makes the final product spongy and a little harder, while in America cream cheese keeps the dessert full-bodied and light at the same time. Blueberries, on the other hand, are a steeple of sweet Americana, playing major roles in a variety of muffins, tarts, and pies.

It is only natural to combine these two delectable traditions in a signature treat. Blueberry Cheesecake Day celebrates this happy encounter and inspires even more culinary exploration and enjoyment!
