Ice Cream For Breakfast Day

Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to a sweet breakfast with this wonderful dessert. It is celebrated every first Saturday in February.


The history of Ice Cream for Breakfast Day begins in the Rappaport family of many children, who lived in Rochester, New York. One day (with a high degree of probability it was 1966) a strong snow storm hit the city. Schools were closed, roads were covered, and the courtyards of houses were littered with snow. In the early February morning, the children complained to their mother that they could not do anything because it was very cold outside. To somehow entertain them, the woman said that there would be ice cream for breakfast.

The tradition of eating ice cream for breakfast has been entrenched in the family. When the children grew up, they introduced her to their friends. This holiday is literally passed down from generation to generation. Today there is information that this day is celebrated not only in the USA, but also in Europe, Nepal, Honduras and so on. As a single date for the celebration, February 4 was chosen and finally fixed.
