The clock never stops, the hands keep rushing at their pace, and we need to keep up with them. Not every day brings in excitement and showers of joy, some days we stumble upon disappointments. But, to stay gloomy and embrace melancholy, or shatter them with our smile, is all that comes from within. In simple words, we are sad when we are sad when we choose to be. So, here we bring to you several reasons to make today count and celebrate each day. The Today column brings to you the reasons to celebrate each day!

Our world is a paradise with wonders lurking in every corner of it. If you are just a bit more aware and grateful for the surroundings, you will discover beauty in everything. Life does not have to be dull or morose when there is a bright sun greeting you every morning, cool breeze caressing your face and lovely nature surrounding you. Take comfort in a starry night with the moon to cradle you to sleep. This is nature’s love for us and it is present everywhere and every day.

“Earth’s crammed with heaven, and every

Common bush afire with god; but only he

Who sees takes off his shoes.”

Today we are celebrating creamsicle day. So actually, creamsicle means: A soft flavor that children the world over has revealed to sate the heat and give power to them during the oppressive summer months. That first bite seems to overwhelm the taste buds, giving a hint that even more surprises await within the frozen delight, this is a day of festivity – Creamsicle Day!

Is it all about summer if you have not had a creamsicle yet? Creamsicle Day is intended to rejoice the appetizing citrusy and creamy dessert on a wooden stick that most of us enjoy throughout the hotter months. After all, there is no best way to cool down when the sun is unblemished, is there?

While “Creamsicle” is actually a brand name, many people have come to use it to explain any sort of similar ice cream. The original Creamsicle, though, consists of vanilla ice cream that is on an ice lolly stick, with iced orange juice outside. Orange was the original flavor, but there are now lots of other flavors for you to decide from. This consists of everything from strawberry to blueberry and grape. 

History of Creamsicle Day

At first, it was created by Frank Epperson in 1905, this industrious, and creative 11-year-old experiment with putting fruit juice around vanilla ice cream. The original ‘Epsicle’, which later became called a Popsicle, creamsicle, and even dreamsicle, were done with just the orange juice outside. On the other hand, now you can find them in countless flavors, from orange to blue raspberry, lime, grape, cherry, and even blueberry!

This cold and refreshing enchantment has been a staple of the summertime ice cream truck since they started moving around, and served at various hot locations since they were spread around as a treat. Most of the People have been going around trying all kinds of creamsicles from distinct areas and locales. It seems that the ones served on Long Island are less about the orange as they are the strong vanilla, while in Florida’s Palm Beach you get a little amount of vanilla flavor and a fanatical amount of orange.

How to commemorate Creamsicle Day

 In the case of popsicles or ice creams, one would think just going out and getting a Creamsicle would be the end of commemorating Creamsicle Day. Yet you wouldn’t be farther from the truth. Even today, grocery stores and markets have them in huge boxes, independently wrapped, or sometimes even in small packages for a couple of the Creamsicles, perfect for the whole family and friends.

Or why don’t you try making your own popsicles by adding many flavors of your choice and enjoy with your family, friends or loved ones? It will be more fun to enjoy homemade popsicles at your home which are made by yourself. It is the best way to rejoice creamsicle day.
