International and National Waffle Day

Date When Celebrated :

International Waffle Day- March 25th

National Waffle Day- August 24th.

Waffle Day is a day that you can waffle on issues and decisions. And, it certainly is a day to eat waffles.

International Waffle Day

This holiday originated in Sweden. It is called Våffeldagen. The holiday coincides with the Feast of the Annunciation. This day was also considered the start of spring in Sweden and Europe.  It became a custom for Swedish families to celebrate the two events by making waffles on this day.

National Waffle Day

Celebrates the patenting of the waffle iron by Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York on August 24, 1869.

The origin of the waffle:  The waffle dates back to the 1300s in Greece. Greeks cooked flat cakes between two metal pans. At the time, they topped it with cheeses and herbs. Pancake syrup wasn't around back then.

Waffles are commonly eaten as breakfast or a snack. They are also an occasional dinner meal for some people.
