Happy National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day
"ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFAST DAY HISTORY
In the 1960s, Florence Rappaport of New York created Ice Cream for Breakfast Day as a way to chase away cabin fever for her six children due to a winter storm that had blown through the area. The annual celebration caught on as her children grew and shared it on their travels. "
Happy Tuesday. ðŸŒ¼â˜•Yeah, Thursday morning breakfast::
