Do you find the temperature to be a little warm? Well, I for one do. I am always trying to find ways to cool off and thank goodness there is a holiday that was created not only to help cool you off, but allow you the excuse to eat delicious strawberry ice cream. Not that you normally need an excuse or reason to eat strawberry ice cream, but having a holiday just for it makes it all the better.


Fun fact: Strawberries were consumed because people believed in their medicinal value to cure depression, sadness and kidney stones (that's right, kidney stones). Today's science has shown that strawberries are full of Vitamin C and can help lower cholesterol. (in humans, so don't try feeding them to your dog to lower his/her cholesterol. It won't work the way you think it will).
