Summary
This national holiday can be blamed on the weather and one mom's fun-loving attitude.

Celebrated on the 4th February in upstate New York, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day was officially founded in 1997 and is a day where it is OK and positively encouraged to have ice-cream for breakfast. It is sometimes observed on the first Saturday of February.

According to Fox Weather and the Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! website, the holiday can be traced back to a historic blizzard in Rochester, New York, in the 1960s. There, Florence J. Rappaport was snowed in with her children and looking for ways to keep them happy and entertained. She decided to serve ice cream for breakfast and the fun occurrence became a tradition. This tradition spread to the family's friends, community, and beyond; the holiday is still celebrated today, with staunch supporters eating ice cream on the first Saturday of February each year.

Look out for special breakfast flavors at your local ice cream shops.

The holiday began in the 1960s, when Florence Rappaport, mother of six children, started a tradition in a snowy winter in Rochester, New York.

In 2014, some regions of the US began giving free bowls of ice cream for free in commemoration of the national holiday.
