Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Pancake Day

National Pancake Day occurs on September 26th. The day was first called Lumberjack Day. The creators of the holiday changed the name to honor pancakes.

Australia, Ireland, and the UK celebrate Pancake Day as Shrove Tuesday. This is also when the second National Pancake Day takes place. Since 2006, the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) has celebrated its own holiday devoted to pancakes. 

Some fun facts about pancakes include:

  • The most expensive pancake in the world costs $200 due to ingredients like 23-carat gold leaf and Madagascan vanilla
  • You can order Blodpl├Ątter in Sweden, which are pancakes made with pork blood
  • The worldÔÇÖs largest pancakes weighed almost 7,000 pounds
  • Pearl Milling Company was the first pancake mix in 1890
  • The highest pancake toss is 31 feet, one inch

National Lumberjack Day

Lumberjack Day was created in 2005 by Marianne Ways and Colleen AF Venable as an excuse to eat pancakes and waffles with friends. They were inspired by International Talk Like a Pirate Day which takes place a week before, and they wanted to celebrate a different character.

Marianne thought it would be better to have a day to talk like a lumberjack as well. It has grown to be celebrated all around the country, with people getting dressed up in plaid shirts and wearing beards, and even having lumberjack parties.

In 2013, they started calling their day National Pancake Day, in an attempt to increase its popularity.
