It is thought that the unofficial holiday was first created in the 1960s by Florence Rappaport in Rochester, New York as a way to entertain her children on a cold and snowy morning. Her brilliant idea took root and has now become a holiday celebrated by people around the world.

Similar holidays include Vanilla Ice Cream Day, Ice Cream Day, Ice Cream Sandwich Day, and Strawberry Ice Cream Day.
