Thank President Reagan for this tasty holiday. In 1984, he designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day.
He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with ‘appropriate ceremonies and activities.’
In other words, spend this Sunday celebrating this delicious frozen treat by enjoying all the ice cream you can eat!
When is National Ice Cream Day?
The third Sunday in July. This year, National Ice Cream Day falls on July 21.
How do I celebrate National Ice Cream Day?
Celebrate by eating ice cream, making your own ice cream or organizing an ice cream social with buckets of ice cream and loads of toppings for your friends, family or neighbors.
