    Today is National Donut Day

    In case you didn´t know it, today is National Donut Day.  It does not have the notoriety of some other holidays, like Whacking Day for example, but any day that is associated with fried dough is OK in my calendar.

    National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year. It was started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Their goal was to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the Salvation Army “Lassies” of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers behind the front lines in France… and back then, they didn´t mind spelling doughnut the long way.

    Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme outlets both are commemorating the holiday by giving out free doughnuts, although the outlets insist on spelling the sugary treat differently.

    To get your freebee at Dunkin’ Donuts, you’ll need to buy a drink. But there are no strings attached at Krispy Kreme.

    Pardon us while we pay for beer...
