New fake holidays pop up pretty much every week at this point, and most of them are just silly. If there’s one fake holiday we can definitely get behind, however, it’s National Dessert Day. We don’t know what the origin of this annual day of celebration is and to be perfectly honest, we don’t care. All that matters is the fact that there are a bunch of great deals out there for National Dessert Day, and even a few freebies to be found. For example, you can get a free doughnut from Krispy Kreme just for signing up for their rewards program!
