International Waffle Day
This holiday originated in Sweden. It is called Våffeldagen. The holidaycoincides with the Feast of the Annunciation. This day was also consideredthe start of spring in Sweden and Europe. It became a custom for Swedishfamilies 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 1300sin 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.
