It's National Donut Day! (Or to Homer Simpson, it's just another Friday.) This isn't simply another Twitter-fueled food holiday--today marks the 75th anniversary of the carb-laden celebration. The day was created by the Salvation Army as a fundraiser to honor WWI's "donut lassies," the women who made doughnuts in metal helmets to bring comfort to American soldiers. 

To celebrate the sweet occasion, Krispy Kreme is giving each customer a free doughnut, no purchase necessary. But for an even more delectable donut experience, get your fix at one of these great OC donut shops. See the entire slideshow here.
