National Pet Memorial Day
September 14, 2014 in the USA

National Pet Memorial Day is observed on September 14, 2014. Since humankind first domesticated animals, the death of a pet or an animal to which one has become emotionally bonded can be an intense loss, comparable with the death of a human loved one, or even greater depending on the individual.

The death can be felt more intensely when the owner has made a decision to end the pet’s life through euthanasia. While there is strong evidence that animals can feel such loss for other animals, this article focuses on human feelings, when an animal is lost, dies or otherwise is departed.

National Cream Filled Donut Day
September 14, 2014 in the USA

Today is National Cream Filled Donut Day! Whether you enjoy chocolate, vanilla, lemon or ganache filling in your donut, today is the perfect day to enjoy these sweet treats!

Donuts came to the United States in the mid-1800s through Dutch settlers that were known for their pastries. The first donut with a hole in the middle is said to be a creation of American Hansen Gregory. Thankfully, someone after Hansen made the brilliant decision to fill that hole with delicious cream filling! These were so well-liked that the Boston Creme Donut, perhaps one of the most popular cream filled donuts, became the official donut of Massachusetts in 2003.

Celebrate National Cream Filled Donut Day with a stop at your local bakery for a box of fresh cream filled donuts!
