Even the cold days this month feel a little warmer, since that spring air is finally coming through. And though it might not be time for tiny shorts and flip-flops just yet, it most certainly is no longer hot chocolate weather.

This can only mean one thing for those of us with an insatiable sweet tooth no matter the season: it's ice cream weather.

Dairy Queen knows this, Dairy Queen likes this, and Dairy Queen is ready to celebrate this joyous realization. So that's why today, on March 15, they're soft-serving us all with a Free Cone day.

Unlike Pizza Hut's recent free pizza giveaway, this one doesn't come with any tests or questions to answer. All you have to do is show up to any participating DQ before close tonight and all after-dinner dessert glory is yours.

If you do participate tonight, keep in mind that you can donate to Children's Miracle Network to benefit local children at hospitals in the CMN network.

Free ice cream, helping others and warm weather—life is pretty sweet today.
