About National Ice Cream Month
National Ice Cream Month is celebrated each year in July and National Ice Cream Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in July, in the United States.
This celebration was originated by Joint resolution 298 in the United States Senate, which was sponsored by Senator Walter Dee Huddleston of Kentucky on May 17th 1984 and Joint resolution 543 in the United States House of Representatives, which was sponsored by Representative Kika de la Garza of Texas on April 11, 1984. The resolution proclaimed the month of July 1984 as "National Ice Cream Month" and July 15th 1984, as "National Ice Cream Day".
Even though the legislation only applied to 1984, July has been used ever since as National Ice Cream Month.
- Did you know? In the early 19th century, a popular delicacy for the upper classes was Parmesan ice cream.
