The Origin of National Doughnut Day + Where to Celebrate in Lexington, Kentucky

Now, I know what you are thinking, "Oh great! Another social media holiday." If you are thinking that, well, you are WRONG. National Doughnut Day wasn't a day created by social media with the sole purpose of posting a picture with a hashtag on Instagram in hopes of gaining numerous likes and followers. National Doughnut Day was a thing way before social media was in existence and even existed way before the internet was invented! It has origins dating back to 1938! #sharethelex #lexingtonky #doughnut #donut #nationaldonutday #nationaldoughnutday #eatkentucky #tasteky
