International Waffle Day is a traditional festival that is celebrated in Sweden on March 25th. The speciality of this day is that it marks the beginning of spring and waffles are typically eaten on this occasion.
International Waffle Day History
The origin of the word can be traced back to Vårfrudagen which means “Our Lady's Day”. The celebration will be nine months prior to Christmas. The Christian holiday of Annunciation and the Waffle Day is scheduled on the same day, though it doesn’t have much religious connections to Our Lady's Day.
A similar celebration is also there in the USA, celebrated on 24th August aimed at honouring the anniversary of the patenting of the first US waffle iron which was invented by Cornelius Swarthout of Troy.

Sometimes we are lucky enough to be with people we love and can let them know we love them even if we cannot say the words. Sometimes, we cannot either be with them, or even feel any love for them. Either way writing can help. Whatever your situation, you might want to think about your experience of fathering today. Maybe think about any good there. Even if you cannot enjoy the day or good memories, try to be gentle with yourself (and pray always).
