Did any of you know that September 22nd is National Ice Cream Cone Day? Well, yes it is!

National Ice Cream Cone Day gives you the opportunity to .... you guessed it......munch out on ice cream cones!

Falling On September 22nd every year, National Ice Cream Cone Day is a great way to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It’s a holiday in which everyone can enjoy this tasty and refreshing treat and not feel guilty about it at all. And since millions of people enjoy ice cream cones all over the world, there are plenty of people looking forward to celebrating this sweet holiday.

Although it’s widely known that the U.S President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of that month as National Ice Cream Day, no one knows who started National Ice Cream Cone Day. However, we do know the history of how the ice cream cone was invented, and we’re going to share that story below in the following section.

Although ice cream had been around for quite some time, it wasn’t until the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century that ice cream began to be served along with a cone. And while the invention of the ice cream cone seems controversial at first—with several different claims being made as to who invented it first, the truth of the matter is that two different people at two different times invented the ice cream cone that we all know and love today.

Italo Marchiony invented the first ice cream cone in New York City around 1896 and he patented it at the end of 1903. In 1904, at the St. Louis World’s Fair, Ernest A. Hamwi, a Syrian immigrant, also created an ice cream cone using a pastry known as zalabia that was sold by a vendor next to him. He invented it because he had run out of bowls and needed a way to sell his ice cream. Needless to say, it was almost an instant hit.

The concept of the ice cream cone spread throughout St. Louis. Since the city was a foundry town, businessmen began to invent specialized baking equipment for making World’s Fair cornucopia cones. By the 1920s, cones were being sold around the country, and by 1924, almost 250 million cones were being produced.

Anyone looking to enjoy an ice cream cone on this holiday should have no problems doing so considering the number of companies that sell ice cream cones. Not only do many fast-food restaurants sell ice cream cones, but they’re also widely available in grocery stores, so anyone can enjoy this treat on this holiday or any day of the year. The consumer might also want to make their own ice cream cones to celebrate this day. Ice cream cones are easy to make and they don’t take a lot of time to make. We think that might be the perfect way for anyone to enjoy this holiday. This holiday can be celebrated every where.

Next onto our swap:

Post THREE (3) pictures and/or gifs to each of your THREE (3) partner's profiles with the theme "National Ice Cream Cone Day" and/or ice cream cones. The pictures that you choose may be the SAME OR DIFFERENT between all of your partners. Please choose pictures that you think THEY will enjoy!

Only people with well filled out profiles may participate in this swap. I will be checking the night before partners get assigned.

If you get 3 pictures from your partner on "National Ice Cream Cone Day" and/or ice cream cones you have to rate them a 5. The heart on the rating is for if you like what they sent.

To leave a photo on someone's profile use this code ! [ ] ( Put image address here ) With NO spaces & paste the picture's link between the curved parentheses.

Practice on your own profile first to be sure it looks good because you can easily delete there.

Pick images that are size 300 wide or smaller to be sure they fit. I go to Google images to get my pictures.

Hover over images to see their size because there will be some larger sizes there too. If you really like something click on it and go to the words SEARCH BY IMAGE and click on that. THEN go to the word SMALL and see if there is one 300 size. There are other tricks in the group thread; AN EASY way to get a small PIC from a BIG one;-)

You can find moving pictures at http://giphy.com/

Please write the TITLE OF THE SWAP ON YOUR PROFILE DECO MESSAGE too! This makes it easier for partners that are in a lot of these swaps to rate it.

Any problems, feel free to contact me.

I want to thank @anrtist for allowing me to borrow SOME of her wording.
