Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

Buy a Doughnut Day ~ October 30

Ok, if you insist!

As I've said many times before...I live in the south.  But I'm still a Yankee (Jersey born and bred) and while Krispy Kreme is the favorite down here, I'm still a Dunkin' Donuts gal.  I'm not sure if either of these franchises will be celebrating today, but it's worth a trip to their websites to see if there are any "specials" going on for this delicious holiday.

My all time favorite doughnut is the Boston Cream, with the chocolate glazed following as a close second.  What's your's?
