Happy International Waffle Day!


DALLAS (CNN/KTVT) — Get some butter and syrup because it’s International Waffle Day.

Several websites mark March 25 as a celebration of all things waffle-related.

The baked-batter breakfast dish is especially popular in the American South, where it’s celebrated by restaurant chain Waffle House.

According to website Days of the Year, Waffle Day began in Sweden: “As it turns out, waffles are such a popular world-wide phenomenon, that they merit two days in the calendar to celebrate them.”

The alternative day is August 24, which reportedly honors the anniversary of the first U.S. waffle iron invention.
