National ice cream day

I almost missed this one. Today is national ice cream day.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

And my wife tells me Reagan didn’t do anything good as President (for the record, I already disagreed with her before finding out about national ice cream day). (via Consumerist)
