History of National Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day
The National Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day has been first celebrated somewhere in the year 1960. Florence Rappaport of Rochester, New York created it in the snowy winter. The first Saturday of every February commemorates the Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day. Florence Rappaport was the mother of six children who got inspired with her youngest two, Ruth (Kramer) and Joe Rappaport on a cold and snowy February morning. The kids were complaining about a cold and snowy day as it was too cold to do anything. As to entertain them, she decided and declared it to be National Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day. In the following year, Florence’s children, who had enjoyed the new little holiday created by their mother reminded her of it, and so they celebrated it again.
From then onward, the day has become a tradition and is celebrated in different parts of the world. The celebrations of the day have been recorded in Germany, Honduras, Nepal, Namibia, and New Zealand. Some feast it as a small family celebration and others do it as larger parties. Florence Rappaport and her children have never imagined how far their made-up ice cream holiday’s influence would spread. During the recent years, many ice cream shops around the US have started to use Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day as a fundraising event for the charity organizations.
