A History Lesson on a Summer Favorite
National Ice Cream Day was first declared National Ice Cream Month in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan who, like many others, clearly enjoyed his ice cream (next to his jelly beans, of course!).
He later stated that the ‘holiday’ would be celebrated on the third Sunday of the month of July and so National Ice Cream Day was born. Even today, people still thank Mr. Reagan for bestowing such an amazing holiday upon us all even if most of us actually celebrate many days out of the summer and even year
