Have you ever heard of a day dedicated to the delicious waffle? If you haven’t, then you should keep reading this story.  Waffle day is a day that you celebrate by eating any kind of waffle that you like or by making your favorite waffles.  Waffle day is a traditional day that is primarily celebrated in Sweden. Waffle day it is always observed on August 24th.

In 1911 , they created the first electric waffle iron that was introduced by General Electric.  Then, in 1953 Frank Dorsa came up with Eggo Frozen Waffles and they were sold in supermarkets across America for the first time.  Many people were truly amazed and they really began to fall in love with waffles.  As time passed, National Waffle day was being celebrated in many nations. There are over 1,500 nations that  actually participate in this day of celebration.  As to the origin of the first waffle, that is a bit of a controversial topic – many people and countries take credit for coming up with the first waffle.  I am just happy that waffles have their day and I will certainly be celebrating this summer.
