Let’s Celebrate – have a donut!

There are two spellings, doughnut and donut, both acceptable. Thedonutsre is a reason why the subliminal spelling, donut—-DO NUT/DO NOT — is really the message. But that makes these forbidden sweet treats even better.  Although most of the time I try to resist donuts, I find myself on occasion giving in to the sugary solution that satisfies my need to have something with my morning coffee.  Every city, town, village, or hamlet has its favorite donut shop that is the go-to place for morning treats. Whether you are taking a box to the office or to a soccer game, you know the best place to get them and you know you will be the hero for the day. No one can resist fresh donuts, especially when they are still warm, just out of the oven.

So, how did National Donut Day begin? It originated in 1938 by the Salvation Army to recognize the volunteers that served the overseas servicemen in World War 1, and to serve the needy. National Donut Day is always the first Friday in June.

So today, Friday, June 6, National Donut Day, you have permission to eat donuts and honor your favorite donut shop. Or if you are truly a donut fan, enjoy wearing your favorite donut socks from Foot Traffic. You won’t be sorry. After all, it’s a national holiday. Let’s celebrate!
