I just wanted to wish everyone a happy National Donut Day! I personally don’t think it is a coincidence that National Running Day and National Donut Day are in the same week. I think someone must know us well 😉
If you don’t know the history of National Donut Day I think the story is pretty cool. The first Friday in June is always National Donut Day. The idea for Donut Day began on the battlefields of France during World War I when Salvation Army workers served coffee and donuts to soldiers in the trenches. Rations were poor so the donut idea was conceived as a means of bringing the soldiers cheer.
P.S. There is actually a National Doughnut Day in November which celebrates just the food itself.
