Happy National Doughnut Day

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy doughnuts. And that’s kind of the same thing.

Folks, a very Happy National Doughnut Day to you! Today, that is the first Friday of June, has come to be dedicated to this extremely popular and scrumptious fried cake made of sweetened dough – an ideal snack small enough to be eaten on the go or for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. And yes, the doughnut is a special favorite of young kids.

An ideal game for the young preschoolers on this ‘doughnuty’ day could be this: Simply tie a length of rope between two trees that are adjacent and yet at a fairly small distance from each other. Get hold of as many doughnuts as kids and string them on the rope with the help of ribbons, such that they are left dangling at a height just out of the kids’ reach. The game is pretty simple – the kids have got to eat an entire doughnut, but without using their hands. It’s obvious that if there’s a delicious-looking golden brown doughnut topped with still-melting cheese or a gooey chocolatey one, it’ll not be long before it disappears. And the mess that follows will have the kids in raptures, no doubt.

By the way, legend has it that this item of confectionery was originally invented by a mother and son aboard a ship, when they were hungry. Thank God for that! 😀
