Did you already have waffles today?

As for many other pastries Sweden has a special day dedicated to waffles!

On 25 March it is Waffle day in Sweden also called Lady Day in some English speaking countries based on the traditional name of the Feast of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (in Swedish: Jungfru Marie bebådelsedag). In former times the day was called vårfrudagen referring to its liturgic origin and the name was later on changed to Waffle day (våffeldagen) which animates people still today to eat tasty waffles on 25 March.
