With “Lesser Reasons We’re Thankful That Ronald Reagan was our 40th President,” nathansmusings calls attention to a special day’s special origin.

“In Proclamation #5157, President Ronald Reagan said:”Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 6, 1984, as Frozen Food Day, and I call upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

It was a decision steeped in appreciation of practical science.

” Frozen food became a part of the space age when Apollo XII astronauts took frozen meals on board. Seventy-two frozen food items were stored on the Skylab for a five hundred-day supply of meals for the crew.”
