The date on the calendar reads July 11, and for big fans of frozen treats, it may as well be Christmas.

To celebrate 7/11, the 7-Eleven convenience store chain is once again giving out free Slurpees to celebrate.

You can go to any participating 7-Eleven store in the United States on Wednesday and grab a free 7.11-ounce Slurpee in any flavor between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. The tradition started in 2002, when the chain celebrated its 75th anniversary.

The company says they plan to give away - you guessed it - at least 7 million free Slurpees on Wednesday.

7-Eleven has grown into a convenience store behemoth with nearly 47,000 stores around the world, including 9,300 in the United States
