History of International Waffle Day

History of International Waffle Day

Waffle day is actually a Swedish festival. It originally began as a religious celebration that takes place 3 months after Christmas. It was originally called ‘Vårfrudagen,’ which translates to ‘Our Lady’s Day (the Feast of the Annunciation). A funny thing about the history of Waffle Day is that the name of the religious festival, ‘Vårfrudagen,’ was eventually confused with another Swedish word, ‘Våffeldagen.’ As time passed, people started celebrating Waffle Day in Sweden by eating waffles all day. This is the history behind Waffle Day. Eventually, people forgot the religious festival ‘Vårfrudagen’ and started celebrating ‘Våffeldagen.’ This holiday national waffle day is famous in Sweden. The waffle irons and authentic waffle recipes were a huge hit.
