2 National Doughnut Days but only 1 is real.
« on: November 05, 2015, 11:31:25 AM »
It's National Doughnut Day. You know, someone in the industry just made that up. There's 2 of them. The summertime National Doughnut Day is one of the legitimate food holiday. It was established by the Salvation Army way back in 1938 to honor the Dough Lassies, female volunteers who made doughnuts for soldiers serving overseas as a way to boost morale. It was a successful effort and led soldiers to use the slogan "doughnuts will win the war!"

National Doughnut Day on Nov. 5, was completely fabricated by national food councils as a way to sell goods. Many food holidays were completely made up by John-Bryan Hopkins, a food writer from Birmingham who runs the site Foodimentary. When he started his website back in 2006 there were already 175 food-related holidays, and he just filled in the rest.

There's 2 spellings for the treat, "Doughnut", & "Donut". Both are assumed to be correct, but you will be considered ignorant to use "Donut", because it always used to be spelled "Doughnut", & it's made from "dough" not "do".
