happy donut day

You’ve probably seen a few donuts on Twitter today. Well, it’s National Donut Day and shops like Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts are giving away free treats all day.

And you know what that means… Donut Selfies!

Twitter has been going crazy today as the social network celebrates the glorious, glorious donut.

Of course, there are some downsides to National Donut Day. Like lines. Check out this line at a Krispy Kreme from this morning.

National Donut Day may seem like some advertising stunt to get people to visit a Dunkin’ Donuts but there’s actually some history here. According to Time, the holiday has been going on for more than 75 years. It was first launched by the Salvation Army to celebrate all of the people who volunteered during World War I.
