Now let's learn a bit about parfaits
Parfait (pronounced [paʁfɛ]) is a French word literally meaning "perfect" commonly employed to describe a kind of frozen dessert, beginning in 1894.

In France, parfait refers to a frozen dessert made from a base of sugar syrup, egg, and cream. A parfait contains enough fat, sugar, alcohol and/or to a lesser extent air to allow it to be made by stirring infrequently while freezing, making it possible to create in a home kitchen without specialist equipment. The fat, sugar, alcohol or air interferes with the formation of water crystals, which would otherwise give the ice cream an uncomfortable texture in the mouth. The formation of ice crystals is managed in the making of regular ice cream by agitating the ice cream constantly while it freezes or chemically by adding glycerol. Neither should be necessary when making a high-quality parfait.

It also refers to a very smooth meat paste (or paté), usually made from liver (chicken or duck) and flavoured with liqueurs.

United States
In The United States, parfait refers to either the traditional French-style dessert or to a popular variant, the American parfait, made by layering parfait cream, ice cream, and/or flavored gelatins in a tall, clear glass, and topping the creation with whipped cream, fresh or canned fruit, and/or liqueurs. In the northern United States, parfaits may also be made by using yogurt layered with nuts or fresh fruits such as peaches, strawberries, or blueberries. Although the traditional American parfait is sweet, savory parfaits have also been concocted, such as a parfait made by layering mashed potatoes with barbecue sauce and pulled pork.

This food holiday is always celebrated on June 25th every year. The whole month of June is National Frozen Yoghurt Month so many people celebrate this day by serving frozen yogurt parfaits instead of ice cream parfaits.

What is this Holiday about? This holiday celebrates the ice cold treat of strawberries in parfait form. It's time to bring awareness to those who have not yet tired a strawberry parfait by making some and sharing it as an after dinner dessert or by serving at a parfait party.
