It’s true. There really is a National Donut Day and today is the day! In fact, it’s the 75th Annual National Donut Day. Seriously. Who knew?
“In 1938, ‘National Doughnut Day’ was created by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I as part of a fundraising effort during the Great Depression.” – newsnet5.com
I can’t even remember the last time I had a donut… but who am I to stand in the face of a National Holiday? I think I need to go out and buy some donuts to show my support of this 75 year old tradition.
