Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month and that the third Sunday of the month is always considered “National Ice Cream Day”? Well low and behold yesterday was the third Sunday – did you celebrate with an ice cream cone? Even though it’s not a National holiday (which I can’t understand) it’s by far the best tasting one!
In searching online to find the origins of this wonderful holiday I found that it was originally proclaimed so by President Reagan in 1984. No wonder President Reagan’s was so popular!
There’s not a person out there that doesn’t remember running out to meet the ice cream man the minute you heard his truck coming up the street playing with the song “The Entertainer” blaring through big speakers on the roof. I remember summers in our neighborhood just waiting for the ice cream man to come down our street when I was little and my children do it today. It’s a tradition that I hope sticks around for a long time. Although I do remember the ice cream being quite a bit cheaper when I was little compared to the prices on the side of the truck now!
To show support for this awesome “unofficial” holiday, HalloweenExpress.com has an Ice Cream Cone Costume complete with sprinkles! It is the funniest costume and believe me you’ll be the talk of town for National Ice Cream Month!
