We know there’s a national day for everything but there are very few things that really deserve it as much as donuts do. They’ve become part of American culture, just like coffee. They’ve come to symbolize the way we get our day started and they’re well... a "happy" food that can be enjoyed by all ages.

National Donut Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June which means-hello, people! this Friday, June 7 is the day! And who knew that this holiday was originally created in honor of the salvation army’s donut lassies who served donuts to soldiers during World War 1?? Yes, donuts deserve a day of their own and that day is upon us!

Here are some of the companies that are offering donut related specials this Friday. Some of these specials are just for Friday and some last a little longer so make sure to check these companies websites for details and restrictions.
