March 25 is the Feast of Annunciation. In Sweden, the day is called Vårfrudagen or Our Lady’s Day. A mispronunciation of that is våffeldagen or waffle day. Though March 25 is no longer a holiday in Sweden, people continue to eat waffles with strawberry jam and whipped cream as a tradition.

Guests may park in the Faculty/Staff spaces in lot J or I (allowed on weekends and after 5 p.m. weekdays).
