National, commemorative, observational, food and trivial days are fun obsession of the #hashtag crowd on social media and a lot of sports fans. Look not further than these fun social media promotions from Indianapolis and Richmond Flying Squirrels last week:
First the Indians used #NationalDonutDay to get a fun post out on their Live Race featuring Dunkin Donuts Icons…..look out CUPPY! (for more on Live Racing, don’t miss our huge article with dozens of races)
Buy any beverage and get your free 🍩 from @dunkindonuts today or you'll end up like Cuppy. #NationalDonutDay pic.twitter.com/JYZIF76956

And slightly more obscure, but equally worthy of celebration the Richmond Flying Squirrels made a splash with this Simpson’s-themed and jelly-filled homage to donuts on #NationalJellyFilledDonutDay
Today might be #NationalDonutDay but a week from now we're handing out Simpsons-themed shirts to the first 1,500 fans 15 & up for #NationalJellyFilledDonutDay with @DuckDonuts!
📅: June 8th
🕔: Gates at 5:45pm & First pitch at 7:05pm

And when you are giving out something this sweet no one is actually going to verify that there really is such a holiday…or they might start a petition to start one.
