Put down that toast and pop-tarts, dust off that waffle maker and get ready to make waffles in honor of National Waffle Day.

August 24 in the United States
International Waffle day: March 25th
How is this holiday celebrated?
Celebrate National Waffle Day by serving waffles to your family. Waffles can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or even as a dessert. The waffle sandwich is another way to eat a waffle that most people don't even think about. Use the waffle as your bread and build the sandwich anyway you like. A great idea is to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich with a pecan waffle. Ohhh yeah that's good eating!
"National Waffle Day should not to be confused with International Waffle Day, (March 25th) which originated in Sweden. In America, August 24th marks the anniversary of the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron given to Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York (yeah, NY!), for a "device to bake waffles" in 1869."
The 1964 World’s Fair in New York City is the birthplace of what here in the states is considered a “Belgian” waffle. Now this can be a bit confusing but what we Americans call the "Belgian" waffle is actually called the “Brussels” waffle in Belgium.
Definition of a waffle
"A waffle is a batter- or dough-based cake cooked in a waffle iron patterned to give a distinctive and characteristic shape. There are many variations based on the type and shape of the iron and the recipe used."
