Happy Vaffledagen

Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation, and since it falls on a Friday this year, much like the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, that means Lenten abstinence from meat is overridden. It also happens to be Waffle Day, thanks to a pun in Swedish. Vårfrudagen —> Våffeldagen

On March 25th I like to re-post some of John J. Reilly’s and my favorite blog posts on this most remarkable of days. March 25th is in many ways the most important day in the Christian calendar.
