In the name of public service, I thought it was important to let you know that today is National Donut Day.
I apologize for the late notice, but you still have several hours to celebrate—and I'm sure that no one will be offended if you have your own personal nod to the doughnut with your Saturday morning coffee.
As frivolous as National Donut Day sounds on the surface, the recognition is rooted in something quite serious, according to the National Donut Day website.
Donut Day was started in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.
National Donut Day is celebrated each year on the first Friday in June.
Many doughnut chains are celebrating the day with special offers.
Krispy Kreme is offering a free aweet treat to all customers, with no additional purchase necessary.
Dunkin Donuts is offering a free doughnut with the purchase of any beverage.
So again, sorry for the late notice — but get out there and celebrate National Donut Day.
Is tomorrow National High Cholesterol Day?
