Born on this lavishly romantic day in 1841.
Did you know that he was a devout Catholic, and that his father was an inkeeper, butcher, and professional zither player? Does that explain a thing or two? Or not? Either way, here are a bunch of Slavonic dances to which you can whirl heedlessly around the living room.

Happy birthday, man. I love you so much and I always will.
