In case you’d forgotten to mark it on your calendar, today is National Doughnut Day, a day on which we remember
the true meaning of Christmas that we work hard and deserve a free damn donut every once in a while. Luckily, the folks at Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts are willing to oblige.
Over at Krispy Kreme, you can just walk in and ask for one free donut of any variety without having to buy anything. The DD offer is a little more restrictive, requiring that you purchase a beverage of some sort.
National Doughnut Day was apparently established in 1938 by The Salvation Army to raise funds to help people in need. Now it’s just an excuse to eat donuts, which is just fine with us.
