It's the perfect day to celebrate. It's July 11, or 7-Eleven.
Participating 7-Eleven stores in the United States and Canada will give away 12-ounce Slurpees from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time.

You can do your own dance, upload it, add @Slurpee and #SlurpeeDance and then head into participating 7-Elevens to get your free small Slurpee drink. The Facebook page encourages you to then do the dance again: "Do it for the arts."
