Today's Holiday: Ice Cream Cone Day

Since July is National Ice Cream Month, there are plenty of days to celebrate by eating ice cream. There are almost as many ways to eat ice cream as there are days! There are milkshakes, malts, sundaes, and floats. At restaurants you can get frosties, blizzards, and flurries. Or you can eat your ice cream a la mode with pie, cake, apple dumplings, cobbler, funnel cakes, or brownies. But today is all about eating ice cream in cone. American legend claims the ice cream cone made it's debut at the St. Louis World's Fair a little over a century ago, but some would say that's debatable. Today you can get your ice cream in a variety of cones. There are cake cones, sugar cones, and waffle cones. In some places you can order chocolate dipped cones.

Personally, I'd say the ice cream cone is one of the world's greatest inventions, and I wouldn't miss celebrating this holiday if someone paid me!
