“Life is like an ice cream cone, you have to lick it one day at a time.” - Charles M. Schulz, American Cartoonist and Creator of “Peanuts”
Pour yourself an ice cream sundae this Sunday and celebrate National Ice Cream Day! You might think that National Ice Cream Day is one of those typical “internet holidays” that are made up to get a hashtag trending — but you’d be wrong. Known for his sweet tooth, President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation in 1984 declaring July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. President Reagan called on Americans to observe the holiday with “appropriate ceremonies and activities”, so eat the entire carton of ice cream today — it’s your civic duty!
