National Doughnut Day

By Jared Ross | June 3rd, 2016

Happy National Doughnut Day, everyone! Or, for the uninitiated, the first Friday in June.

For those curious as to the reason for the celebration (to be honest, do you need a reason to celebrate doughnuts?), the holiday is to commemorate the Salvation Army Lassies, the women who served doughnuts to soldiers in World War I.
