When: The first Friday of June and November 5
Where: 🌐 Everywhere
First occurrence: 1938❓
Doughnut Day being celebrated on the first Friday of June
was an initiative in 1938 of the Salvation Army in Chicago
to honor the Doughnut Girls who helped boost the morale
of US soldiers in France in WW I and as a fundraiser
to help the poor during the Great Depression.🍩AKA: Donut Appreciation DayDonut Appreciation Day on November 5 is
from an uncertain origin. But it probably was created after 1938. Due to it’s confusion with Doughnut Day, these two
observances have fused together without any resistance,
because there is enough appetite for 2 donut days in one year.
Many doughnut stores use this holiday
to offer free doughnuts or discounts on doughnuts.
