We just briefly spoke about it. National Donut Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June each year (this year, June 1st). The holiday was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. It is another excuse for us to indulge in hot, fresh Krispy Kreme donuts one more time.

On the first Friday the 13th of the year you have the green light to heap all of the problems, errors, and mistakes occurred on someone else. On this day you don’t have to take responsibility or blame for any faux pas on your part. But beware of others trying to put the blame on you! It can have a real backfire effect.
