December 13th Ice Cream Day

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! Who doesn’t like ice cream!?! Oddly I found most of the information on today was about the ice cream cone… then why isn’t it Ice Cream Cone Day? Ronald Reagan proclaimed July National Ice Cream month so, how did today end up in December? Maybe it’s because ice cream is good any time, any place! Anyway, Charles E. Minchef is credited with serving the first ice cream cone on July 23rd, 1904 (again, this is December!) though his claim was challenged by Italo Marchiony from New York City who had been serving lemon ice in New York City since 1896. However, lemon ice may, or may not, have been ice cream! And what does all this have to do with Ice Cream Day and December? I don’t know and I don’t care.

How to celebrate – Have some ice cream. Figure out your favorite flavor of ice cream. Thank Thomas Jefferson who introduced ice cream to America.
