SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT SWEETEST DAY

Sweetest Day is a holiday where people take time out to show appreciation towards others by giving candy or other sweets to people or just for the purpose of making them happy.  The holiday began in 1922 when Herbert Birch Kingston, an employee at a chocolate factory in Cleveland handed out sweets to children at a nearby orphanage to add a little cheer to their lives.  Each year, Mr. Kingston would continue to do this, but other people began to get on the bandwagon as well. The tradition of sweets has expanded into other states, and Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of October by many people around the country - especially in the states around the Great Lakes and in the Northeast.

The gift giving tradition on Sweetest Day began with sweets being given to those less fortunate.  However, the scope of gift giving has expanded to include loved ones as well.  It is always nice to give to your spouse or partner, but it is sometimes nicer to give to those who are really in need or just need to feel appreciated.
