National Doughnut Day!

I cannot believe we have reserved a day in the year to celebrate donuts!

Yes, today is National Doughnut Day in the US. Here are some details from Wiki.

National Doughnut Day is on the first Friday of June each year. The holiday celebrates the doughnut, an edible, ring-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened.

National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. They wanted to help the needy during the Great Depression and also wanted to honor the Salvation Army “Lassies” of WWI, who served doughnuts to soldiers on the front lines.

   

 Enjoy your doughnuts today my friends!
