The longer story, from Wikipedia:

National Ice Cream Month is celebrated each year in July in the United States. President Ronald Reagan designated July 1984 as National Ice Cream Month and July 21, 1984 as National Ice Cream Day with Presidential Proclamation 5219 in 1984. President Reagan recognized the popularity of ice cream in the United States (90% of the nation’s population consumes ice cream) and stated that these two events should be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Today, National Ice Cream Month is celebrated each July and National Ice Cream Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in July [this year, 7/21/13], even though the presidential proclamation only mentioned the month and date in 1984.

The day has passed, but there are a few days left for ice cream in July.
