It’s early afternoon her, so you still have time to combine two National holidays. National Vanilla Ice Cream Day and Parent’s Day. They both are observed on the 23rd of July. Take your parents out for some vanilla ICE CREAM!! This day honors one of the most popular of the ice cream flavors. Did you know that in the US, the most common use of vanilla flavoring is for ice cream?
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month and established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month of July.
In July we can use Vanilla Ice Cream Day to bring all our parents together on National Parent’s Day and show them some appreciation all at once. Parents play a vital role in the lives of children. National Parents’ Day, we honor all parents do every day to raise up their children in a world that is constantly changing and challenging.
National Parents’ Day was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into Law (36 U.S.C. § 135) for: recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.” The bill was introduced by Republican Senator Trent Lott.
On this warm Sunday, if you have the equipment and recipe, you could make your own homemade vanilla ice cream with your parents and enjoy! Post a photo on social media using #VanillaIceCreamDay to encourage others to do the same.
