The first Friday in June marks one of the most delicious holidays of the year — National Donut Day! This celebration of this sweet dessert also has a sweet history; it was created in 1938 in honor of the men and women who delivered doughnuts to our wounded soldiers during WWI. So while you’re munching on your free donuts, peruse these delectable ways to include the treat in your wedding day.
