We woke up this morning to snow, a decent amount of it about 8 inches on the ground and more falling still from the sky. So, as someone recently said perhaps this is going to be the theme of the holidays this year, snow on the eve of each.  Suits me just fine. We had snow the evening before Halloween and then snow on the Eve of Thanksgiving, round it out with some snow on Christmas Eve and I’ll be one very happy little camper.

Needless to say we were feeling a little conflicted around the Heffernan house today….preparations for  Thanksgiving were beginning to feel a little like Christmas.

It of course didn’t help that one of the boys decided it was time to make some cinnamon buns and in order to do that we needed Christmas music playing in the background.  In addition to the cinnamon buns we took a stab at homemade jelly doughnuts.

Today is National Doughnut Day. Seriously, there is and it’s evidently not some box store gimmick either. It is celebrated on the First Friday of June and was created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to celebrate the women who served donuts to the soldiers during World War I. The women went to the front lines and served home cooked baked goods to the soldiers there.  It was started as a fundraising event but is celebrated throughout the United States.

Donut chains, such as Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme donuts serve free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day in celebration of the event.
