National Ice Cream Day!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Not sure about you but ice cream is one of my favourite foods so I never need an excuse to eat it, but, today is the day we celebrate ice cream so we really do have an excuse, even a reason, to eat it! Hip Hip Hooray!

The 3rd Sunday of every July has been declared National Ice Cream Day by a former United States President no less. So it really sounds extra official doesn’t it!? I mean if a President of the United States wants you to eat ice cream well then we’d better do just that! Back in 1984 President Ronald Reagan designated the month of July as National Ice Cream Month and also the 3rd Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day. So really, if you want, you could eat ice cream every day in July – I’m game!

Now, which flavour to have? Will it be in a cone or a cup, or perhaps a dish to hold an entire banana split? And will you add sprinkles, or chocolate chips, perhaps some strawberry sauce or my favourite: hot fudge!!

Young or young at heart, today is the day to celebrate ice cream so I see a visit to the local ice cream parlour in my near future…hopefully in yours too!

Happy National Ice Cream Day and have a Doog News Day too!
