Figure Skater Recreates the Viral Wednesday Dance on Ice

It seems that the Wednesday fever is far from being over! Joining the long line of celebrities and people across the globe and taking the trend up a notch, figure skater Kamila Valieva performed the newly iconic Wednesday dance at the recent Russian Figure Skating Championships. Moreover, she included ‘Thing’ too!

The Event

On 25th December 2022, the 16-year-old pro figure skater took to the ice rink, during her Championship performance, in a deep black frock mirroring the one donned by Wednesday actress Jenna Ortega. Valieva opened her performance with the original Addams’s Family theme song, where she was joined by ‘Thing,’ the live severed hand and the faithful sidekick of the character Wednesday Addams. Kick-starting her performance, Thing pulled the pair of skaters up before Valieva climbed over the rail.

The Performance

While sliding and gliding on ice, Valieva performed every move from the now iconic dance with flawless execution, inclining into the signature intense and gloomy expressions of Wednesday Addams. Eventually, the theme music switched to “Goo Goo Muck” by The Cramps, signaling the start of the viral dance. The beautifully choreographed piece was an ode to the original dance piece created and performed by Jenna Ortega in the internationally acclaimed Netflix original series Wednesday, directed by Tim Burton. Guiding her final moves, “Bloody Mary” by Lady Gaga was the last song that capped off Valieva’s performance.

The Talent

Without missing a beat, Valieva delivered a performance that was beautiful yet kooky. Her black dress and the signature braided hairdo of Wednesday brought an uncanny resemblance to the original scene by heightening the atmosphere. The talented teen skater effortlessly elevated her performance by combining the peculiarity of the spooky dance with the elegance of figure skating. This wasn’t surprising coming from her, as Kamila Valieva was declared the first woman to land a coveted quadruple jump in the Olympic Games during her performance in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

Here Is the Right Temperature for Your Refrigerator

A refrigerator is an important appliance in every household. It is never unplugged and used constantly with food going in and out of it. It also stores the food that we want to preserve, from leftovers to fresh veggies. At the right temperature, the food can be stored for days or weeks. Freezers can do the same sometimes for months, sometimes indefinitely. Read on to find out the temperatures your refrigerator and freezer should be at to slow down the growth of bacteria and keep your food fresh for longer.

The Refrigerator Temperature

For an ideal refrigerator temperature, stay between 35 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit, or 1.7 to 3.3 degrees celsius. 40 degrees Fahrenheit is the point where bacterias start to multiply, hence it is important to not get any closer to that temperature. Higher temperatures can lead to bacteria such as Salmonella and E.Coli spoiling the food.

The Freezer Temperature

Since the freezer is mainly used for freezing purposes, whether food or ice, it is best to keep it as close to 0 degrees Fahrenheit as possible. However, if your freezer has sizeable ice built up in it, it indicates that the temperature is too cold. This can lead to extremely high utility bills, as well as cause the food to lose flavor and moisture. You can decrease the temperature for a few hours, but remember to increase it back again!

How to Maintain Your Refrigerator’s Cooling

Sometimes, your appliance might be having trouble keeping its cool, and constantly have an increasing temperature. In this case, there are several steps you can take. Firstly, always cool the food before you store it. Putting in a piping hot bowl of soup is cause for trouble. Also, avoid opening and closing the door too much, so maybe decide what you want beforehand instead of checking constantly. Lastly, keep your fridge and freezer well-stocked as a full fridge cools better and longer than an empty one.
