Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the true creator of this day, but it seems we did find the origin of this day.
Why the month of January and why the 13th day??  That's the question...
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day as all food and drink holidays are.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a food holiday that is publicized to celebrate.

We found  recognition from...
calendar sites, food sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday. We also found reference to this day on food related websites and baker websites since marzipan is considered a dessert.

Definition of Ice Cream
"Ice cream or ice-cream is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. Most varieties contain sugar, although some are made with other sweeteners. In some cases, artificial flavorings and colorings are used in addition to (or in replacement of) the natural ingredients. This mixture is stirred slowly while cooling to prevent large ice crystals from forming; the result is a smoothly textured ice cream.

The meaning of the term ice cream varies from one country to another. Terms like frozen custard, frozen yogurt, sorbet, gelato and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles. In some countries, like the USA, the term ice cream applies only to a specific variety, and their governments regulate the commercial use of all these terms based on quantities of ingredients. In others, like Italy and Argentina, one word is used for all the variants. Alternatives made from soy milk, rice milk, and goat milk are available for those who are lactose intolerant or have an allergy to dairy protein, or in the case of soy milk for those who want to avoid animal products."
