July is the perfect month for ice cream. Ice cream every day and of every flavor to bring a little chill into the summer heat. This is why July is Ice Cream Month. The third Sunday in July is Ice Cream Day, a holiday dedicated to the delicious treat. Ice cream has been around in some form for thousands of years. Several different cultures were creating something similar by mixing flavorings with snow and ice. Today ice cream is enjoyed in countries all over the world. Some ice cream shops may offer free or discounted ice cream on this day, so make sure you look up ice cream shops near you.
