It’s that time of year again – time for doughnut lovers to rejoice.

National Doughnut Day (or donut depending on your preference) is on the first Friday of June each year. Friday June 7, 2013 will mark the 76th annual National Doughnut Day in the U.S.

While it’s not exactly a holiday that will get you a day off of work, it’s a day for donut connoisseurs to partake in the goodness of a freshly-frosted little bundle of fried dough, often for free.

National Doughnut Day is not just a ploy to get more customers into the local bakery or doughnut establishment—it is in fact a real celebration —recognized on the first Friday in June every year.

In 1938, National Doughnut Day was created by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I as part of a fundraising effort during the Great Depression.
