International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day

Volume 7, Issue 20; 31 Jan 2004; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Chase away the winter blues on February 7th.

My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate—that's my philosophy.

Thornton Wilder

From our local news, arts, and entertainment weekly, The Valley Advocate, comes word of International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. This year it’s the 7th of February.

Speaking as someone who occasionally talked his father into letting him have ice cream for breakfast (it’s like milk, it’s got calcium, it’s good for you!), this is a holiday I can whole-heartedly support!

Chocolate? Rum raisin? Mint Chocolate Chip? Pistachio? Vanilla? French Vanilla? Cantaloupe? (Yeah, if I could find any!) It’s a good thing I’ve got a week to decide!
