Waffle Day- March 25

International Waffle Day was designed to celebrate the invention of the waffle. The source of the holiday is in Sweden where they celebrate VĂ„ffeldagen, "Our Lady's Feast" which took place nine months before Christmas, the Christian feast of the gospel of the birth of Jesus. Because the name of the holiday sounds like the word "Waffle day", they also celebrate the day they were baptized by eating wafers. 
It is speculated that the origin of the waffle was in ancient Greece, where they baked two flat cakes on two metal plates. Another hypothesis is that the origin of the waffle was in the Middle Ages, when a knight wearing a dandruff shell accidentally sat on a cake and dipped it in a cross-sectional mark. 

There are all kinds of waffles. There are Belgian waffles that are eaten with ice cream, fruit and whipped cream. There are American waffles eaten for breakfast with butter or syrup. The Japanese waffle is made in the shape of a fish and filled with a sauce. And there are the waffles you buy ready that have a million styles and flavors.

Loacker is an Italian company that manufactures wafers, chocolate and other products whose home enterprise is located in South Tyrol, Italy. It was founded in 1926 as a family company of Alphonse Loecker.

The Belgian Waffle was first exhibited at an international food exhibition in Brussels in 1958. The Belgian version contains yeast. In fact, it was not called a Belgian waffle at all, but Waffle Brussels, or Waffle Liege (depending on the version of the city after which it was called toppled). The Belgian waffle arrived in America when served as dessert with ice cream and strawberry balls at a food exhibition held in Seattle in 1962.

The easiest version of the Belgian waffle, as we know it in Israel, was created after the Belgian waffle was presented at the 1964 World Fair in New York in Flushing Meadows Park. The waffle was also called Bell-and was presented to the buyers by Maurice Wermersch of Brussels, Belgium. It was served with whipped cream and strawberries and sold at the price of a US dollar.

So how do you celebrate the Waffle Day?
What question, eating wafers, no matter what!

March 25 is also Pecan Day
