Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Today is National Ice Cream Day! Of course D and I celebrated-- how could we not?! But that left me wondering... how did National Ice Cream Day become, well... National?

So off I went on a librarian search through the catacombs of Google (what else?! :P). After a little digging, I discovered this Presidential Proclamation from 1984, in which Ronald Reagan declared July National Ice Cream Month. I mean, Reagan himself declares ice cream as a "nutritious and wholesome food." I'm not arguing.

Happy National Ice Cream Day, y'all!
