Datebook: March 25 - Vaffeldagen (Waffle Day)

Mar 25, 2013

"Vaffeldagen," a great day to eat waffles in Sweden! It's also "Our Lady's Day," the Christian holiday traditionally known as the Feast of the Annunciation. In Swedish this is called "Warfrudagen," which in vernacular sounds like Vaffeldagen, hence the dual celebration. Pass the syrup!

It’s Monday, March 25
