Friday, June 3 is another of those made-up national holidays, but this one is actually fun.

It is National Donut Day. No, you won't get a day off from work, but you could grab a free donut on the way in.

The day, the first Friday in June, has actually been around since World War II. It was originally marked to honor the troops with free donuts courtesy the Salvation Army.

Where the Deals Are

Dunkin Donuts will give you a free donut with any coffee or cold beverage purchase on Friday.

Krispy Kreme will give each customer one free glazed donut, no purchase required. This is at Krispy Kreme stores only, so don't try to grab one off the supermarket shelf and eat it, wise guy.

Merritt’s Bakery is offering World War I Donut Lassies from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. These doughnuts might not be free but 20 percent of the proceeds go to The Salvation Army!  

And if you are lucky, someone will bring a couple of dozen donuts to your workplace. That way you don't waste your money.
