Sweetest Day is observed on the third Saturday in the month of October. It reportedly had its beginnings in Cleveland in 1922, during the Great Depression by a man named Herbert Birch Kingston – a candy store employee who felt that the city’s orphans and shut-ins were often overlooked and neglected. On the third Saturday in October he enlisted his friends and neighbors to distribute candy and small gifts to those who had fallen on hard times. Others joined and the celebration came to be known as “Sweetest Day.”
At present the holiday is primarily celebrated in the Midwestern U.S. states of Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and Ohio. Today this celebration seems to largely involve giving small presents, such as cards, candy and flowers to family, friends and loved ones. It also gives us an opportunity (or reminder) to reach out to the not- so-well-off and spread happiness and joy in their lives.
