|What is National Ice Cream Day?|
Do you love ice cream? National Ice Cream Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of July each and every year. If one day does not give you enough time to celebrate one of the most popular cold treat on earth then you should be relieved to find out that July itself is known as National Ice Cream Month. Whether you prefer your ice cream in a cup or cone, with some warm apple pie or on top of a banana split, be sure to visit your local ice cream shop and partake in one of the "sweetest" holidays of the year. With all the toppings and flavors to chose from, it is impossible to go wrong!
United States President Ronald Reagan is credited with the creation of both the ice cream day and ice cream month. President Reagan was a big fan of ice cream and created both National Ice Cream Day (3rd Snday in July) and National Ice Cream Month (July) in 1984. July is a perfect time for this unofficial holiday because ice cream is a perfect way to cool off from the warm summer heat.
