On March 2, 1836, the founding fathers of the Republic of Texas gathered at the settlement of Washington-on-the-Brazos and declared independence from Mexico. Although we were an independent nation for only 9 years, we Texans maintain our independent streak and celebrate Texas Independence Day every year.
The Glazing Saddles franchise of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts contributed to the celebration in Austin yesterday by arranging red, white, and blue donuts in the shape of the Texas flag. Appropriately, there were precisley 1,836 donuts.
