May 25: National Tap Dance Day

Wikipedia claims that National Tap Dance Day is established by federal law, but that may be stretching things just a bit. Instead it appears that, in 1989, the 101st Congress did adopt Senate Joint Resolution 53.

But the inspiration for National Tap Dance Day, or at least the inspiration for declaring today to be National Tap Dance Day, is that today is also the anniversary of the birth of Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.
