I never stop marvelling
at the kinds of "national days" and "weeks" and "months" that are celebrated here.
Tomorrow's National Ice Cream Day!!!!
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month 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."
The International Ice Cream Association (IICA) encourages retailers and consumers to celebrate July as National Ice Cream Month. In 2005, National Ice Cream Day will be Sunday, July 17.
