TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Your hump day just got a little better because Wednesday, September 26 is National Pancake Day!
The holiday started as Lumberjack Day/Eat Like A Lumberjack Day in 2005.
According to lumberjackday.net, it was invented by a couple of friends who wanted an excuse to eat a ton of pancakes and waffles, because what else would a lumberjack eat?
The crew established it as an alternative to “Talk Like A Pirate Day”, which just walked the plank on September 19.
Unfortunately, IHOP celebrates its own National Pancake Day on a different day of the year, which will land on March 5 in 2019.
Pancakes are one of the oldest breakfast foods. There is even evidence they were eaten by prehistoric societies.
But the breakfast staple has come a long way since then. And now it is time for you to take a bite out of this sticky situation.
Happy National Pancake Day!
