Shops serve up sweet freebies by the boxful on National Doughnut Day

The Christmas day of doughnut businesses is upon us.

Friday is National Doughnut Day, and people across the country are joining the celebration. 

According to USA Today, about 60 percent of American households eat the fried, doughy delights.

Here is a look at how national and local businesses are celebrating a food as American as Simpsons themselves.

Strange Donuts, in collaboration with Kaldi’s Coffee, 4 Hands Brewing Co. and Feast Magazine, is throwing a doughnut party in St. Louis. The event will feature doughnuts, DJs, beer and more. Tickets to the event cost $12, and proceeds benefit Strange Cares, a child-focused nonprofit effort.

Hurts Donut also got in on the giving spirit of the day. Proceeds from sales at the Springfield shop will benefit the Kids of Our Heroes Adventure Camp, according to a Facebook post.

LaMar’s Donuts in Kansas City is offering customers a free doughnut in exchange for a golden ticket that can be printed off from its website.

The big national chains are celebrating, too. In honor of the day, Krispy Kreme is offering any doughnut for free — no purchase necessary.

For those who like their doughnuts with a cup of coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts is giving away their classic doughnut with any beverage purchase.
