International Waffle Day is a tradition that originates from Sweden, known as “Våffeldagen” in Swedish. It is celebrated on March 25th every year. The day marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated by eating waffles.

The tradition began in Sweden and has since spread to other countries, becoming a day for people around the world to enjoy waffles in various forms, with a variety of toppings such as whipped cream, fruits, and chocolate. The date, March 25th, coincides with the Feast of the Annunciation (also known as Lady Day), and the term “Våffeldagen” was originally a mispronunciation of “Vårfrudagen” (Our Lady’s Day) in Swedish, which over time turned into a day dedicated to waffle consumption.
