Daily Holidays - July 1

Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day The natural creativity of human beings finds expression through many forms such as painting, poetry, music and…. Ice cream flavors. The selection of available flavors boggles the mind and often stretches the bounds of believability. From fish flavored varieties to ice cream made from goat’s milk, the options for satisfying your ice cream craving seem endless. Haagen-Daz announces new flavors and types of ice cream every year, and there are many local boutique ice cream shops with their own unique flavors. Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day celebrates all the crazy flavors that have been invented over the years and even those which have yet to come to light! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/creative-ice-cream-flavors-day/

International Joke Day Do you think you’re funny? The best way to get a feel for a country is to try to understand the humor. Laughter is a universally recognized expression of amusement, and joke telling can become a professional gig for those that truly have the humorous touch. International Joke Day is the perfect day to let out all of the guffaw producing, or groan inducing jokes you’ve collected over the years, sharing them with friends or any passerby you can get to listen to you. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/international-joke-day/

Canada Day Canada Day celebrates that day in history when the British North America Act (Now called the Constitution Act of 1867) was put into place. This was an important end to a long struggle to get Canada recognized as a separate country from its British parents. Three colonies were bound together to create what is now recognized as one of the best countries in the world to live in. For a long time it had some issues with its currency not performing well on the world stage, but recently it has risen to prominence and held its own amongst first world countries. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/canada-day/

Zipcode Day Ever wondered exactly what the ZIP in ZIP code stood for? (You did notice it was all capitalized right? That means it’s an acronym. No? Well, it is! Happy ‘I learned something new today’ day!) ZIP code stands for ‘Zone Improvement Plan’ and was brought into existence. While they do vary from place to place, how they’re utilized is incredibly standard. They started out just being used to make sure mail was sent to the right place and keep things flowing smoothly. Since then they’ve been utilized in a lot of different ways, including emergency services direction. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/zip-code-day/
