There are two National Pancake Days each year, one on September 26 and the other on February 25. The September 26 National Pancake Day is a relatively new holiday, having been founded in 2005 by Marianne Ways and Collen AF Venable. The two women were looking for an excuse to eat pancakes and waffles with friends, and they decided to start a holiday to celebrate their love of these breakfast foods.

The September 26 National Pancake Day is not as widely celebrated as the February 25 National Pancake Day, which is a Christian holiday that falls on the day before Ash Wednesday. However, there are still many ways to celebrate National Pancake Day on September 26. Some people like to make pancakes at home with their families and friends. Others like to go to restaurants that offer special pancake dishes on this day. There are also pancake festivals and pancake races held in some communities.

No matter how you choose to celebrate National Pancake Day, it is a great opportunity to enjoy these delicious breakfast foods and have some fun.

Here are some of the ways people might celebrate National Pancake Day on September 26:

  • Make pancakes at home with family and friends.

  • Go to a restaurant that offers special pancake dishes on this day.

  • Attend a pancake festival or pancake race.

  • Have a pancake breakfast fundraiser for a local charity.

  • Donate to a food bank that provides pancakes to people in need.

  • Simply enjoy a stack of pancakes with your favourite toppings.

However you choose to celebrate, National Pancake Day is a day to indulge in your love of pancakes and have some fun.
