Welcome to another post for the series:
While growing up and living in Ohio, we always did/celebrated Sweetest Day.
- do something nice for someone
- dinner out
- a card (I don’t buy cards hardly ever, and never on this day either)
According to Wikipedia, Sweetest Day is:
Sweetest Day is an observance celebrated primarily in the Great Lakes region, and parts of the Northeast United States, on the third Saturday in October. It is described by Retail Confectioners International as an “occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember our husbands, boyfriends, the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.” Sweetest Day has also been referred to as a “concocted promotion” created by the candy industry solely to increase sales of sweets.
Enjoy this little tidbit!
