Do you know that Waffle Day is approaching?
When you think of waffles, what country springs to mind? The USA, Belgium?
Both countries are, of course, renowned for their waffles and in Belgium’s case, it’s in the name!
But, we actually have Sweden to thank for giving us waffle day. There it is known as ‘Vaffeldagen’. This is because it sounds similar to ‘Varfrudagen’, meaning ‘Our Lady’s Day’ or the Feast of the Annunciation which takes place on the 25th March to mark the beginning of spring.
