National Ice Cream Month has been held during July each year in the United States since President Ronald Reagan designated it as such in 1984. He also named the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day. Ninety percent of the nation's population consumes ice cream, according to industry reports, so Reagan reportedly stated these two July events should be observed with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."
