National Ice cream day is coming

National Ice Cream Day was designated by the United States government in 1984, under President Ronald Reagan. However, the origins of celebrating ice cream go back much further.

The tradition of eating ice cream in the summer dates back to the 18th century, and it has been a popular treat ever since. In recent years, National Ice Cream Day has become a widely recognized celebration of this beloved dessert, with ice cream shops and companies offering special deals and promotions to mark the occasion.

It is typically celebrated on the third Sunday of July each year. In 2023, National Ice Cream Day falls on July 16th. This day is an opportunity for people to enjoy their favorite ice cream flavors and to celebrate the summer season

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
