Don't Be A Waffler On International Waffle Day

While most of the food-based holidays we celebrate are cut-and-dry affairs -- with whatever cloak-based committee deciding on a day and sticking with it -- there's a bit of a mini-controversy surrounding the celebration of waffles. You see, there's two completely separate holidays for the delicious tic-tac-toe-shaped piece of dough. America celebrates National Waffle Day on August 24th, but the International version -- wherein the entire world comes together to chow down on waffles -- was yesterday, March 25th. So today, a day late, we give you a gallery of the most delectable waffles we could find.
