July 17th

Hello! I didn't forget about you yesterday. There wasn't any holidays on July 16th. But there are there today to make up for it.

The first one is a very yummy one!  National Ice Cream Day! This whole month is ice cream month, but today specifically is the day!

And for the second holiday, to get into a little more detail, today is Peach Ice Cream Day. I have never had peach ice cream, maybe today is the day to try it out!

Finally we have Yellow Pig Day.
The Yellow Pig was the brainstorm of mathematicians Michael Spivak and David C. Kelly in the early 1960's. They were students at Princeton University, studying mathematics. History was made as they were listing interesting properties of the number 17 (can you imagine the interesting properties!?). During this thought wave, the yellow pig was born. Most likely, it had 17 toes, 17 teeth, 17 eyelashes, etc. The yellow pig and the number 17 have been linked ever since.
