International Waffle Day is a traditional festival that is celebrated in Sweden on March 25th.  The speciality of this day is that it marks the beginning of spring and waffles are typically eaten on this occasion.

International Waffle Day History

The origin of the word can be traced back to Vårfrudagen which means “Our Lady's Day”. The celebration will be nine months prior to Christmas. The Christian holiday of Annunciation and the Waffle Day is scheduled on the same day, though it doesn’t have much religious connections to Our Lady's Day.
A similar celebration is also there in the USA, celebrated on 24th August aimed at honouring the anniversary of the patenting of the first US waffle iron which was invented by Cornelius Swarthout of Troy.

International Waffle Day Celebrations

Waffle day celebration gives an opportunity to explore a wide variety of waffles such as American waffles topped with fried chicken, waffles drenched in sugary maple syrup, Brussels or Liège Belgian waffle coated with confectioner’s sugar or chocolate or cream, sweet Hong Kong waffle laced with the flavours of peanut butter or honey melon etc. Having a wide variety of waffles is the major attraction of this international Waffle Day celebration.
