Happy National Doughnut Day

June has finally arrived! Without a doubt, one of the best months of year, marking the start of summer.  And this also means that doughnut day is here. Every year on the first Friday in June, passionate doughnut lovers celebrate this special day.

This holiday not only honors the deliciousness of doughnuts, but also honors the Salvation Army Lassies, who are the women that would serve doughnuts to solider during the second world war.

These incredible ladies in fact went to the front lines to provide doughnuts and home cooked food. They also provided morale support to the troops at battle.  In many cases, the doughnuts were cooked in oil inside the helmets of the soldiers.

All you have to do to observe this day is enjoy your favorite doughnut and use the hashtag #NationalDonutDay or #NationalDoughnutDay when you post an epic picture on social media.
