It seems our sinful predilection to doughnuts has spawned another date to celebrate.
Today was National Doughnut Day.
I know. It seems like we have celebrated this very occasion — in June, in fact.
The legend of marking doughnut day in early summer was in honor of the women who served the delectable pastries to soldiers on the front in World War I. You can blame the Salvation Army for making it so back in 1938. They needed a shtick for a fundraiser, and a phenomenon was born.
This month’s version of the festivities is a bit more cryptic. No one really knows how it got started.
I raise an old fashioned doughnut to mark this day. May your delectable curves live long enough to satiate my saccharine lust.
