Sweetest Day

Sweetest Day is a day similar to Valentine's Day when people share romance or appreciation for one another. It occurs on the third Saturday of October.

The holiday is said to have begun in the city of Cleveland, Ohio in 1922. Candy store employee, Herbert Birch Kingston, put together a group of citizens to provide small gifts to homeless people, orphans, and others who had fallen on hard times. Now, his tradition seems to largely involve giving small presents such as cards, candy, and flowers to family, friends, and sweethearts.

Although mostly a regional celebration in the Great Lakes region and the Northeast, Sweetest Day is beginning to be observed in other areas as well. Over time, it will evolve to be another holiday in which to show romantic love or appreciation to friends and loved ones.
