2 Cents: International Waffle Day

Central PA Live

Speaking of maple syrup today is International Waffle Day!

There’s plenty of ways to celebrate. You can make your own waffles at home, go out to a restaurant for chicken and waffles, even go to town and enter a waffle-eating contest.

International Waffle Day started in Sweden, then spread worldwide.

If you don’t want to wait a full year to celebrate all things waffles again, August 24 is National Waffle Day.

It marks the anniversity of the first U.S. Patent for a Waffle Iron.

It was issued on August 24, 1869 to a gentleman by the interesting name of Cornelius Swarthout.
