Did you know that March 25th is WAFFLE day? According to DayoftheYear.com, Waffle Day began in Sweden as Våffeldagen — actually due to confusion between the Swedish “vårfrudagen” meaning “Our Lady’s Day” which falls on the same date. The day historically marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated by the eating of many waffles. Sounds delicious to us! So today we’re celebrating accordingly — with all the wacky waffle fun you can handle.
