It’s National Donut Day!
Or doughnut day! Tomato, tomaaahhhhto amiright?
Before you go diving into that box of doughy goodness, let’s take a second to learn about this sugary sweet holiday.
We did our research and found the following fun facts surrounding Donut Day:
- Each year on the first Friday in June, people participate in National Doughnut or Donut Day
- This day celebrates the doughnut and honors the Salvation Army Lassies, the women that served doughnuts to soldiers during WWI
- The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of American soldiers. American infantrymen were then commonly called “doughboys.”
Now that we’re all educated, let’s focus on the main event: HOW TO CELEBRATE?!
By eating donuts, of course! And most likely, at a discount. Many bakeries offer specials on this day, so pick up a dozen or two for your office and spread the cheer. Be sure to get a variety because you just never know who’s a basic glazed fan or a chocolate sprinkle lover.
