Happy Sweetest Day!

Welcome to another post for the series:

Did you know:



While growing up and living in Ohio, we always did/celebrated Sweetest Day. 

  • present
  • do something nice for someone
  • dinner out
  • a card (I don’t buy cards hardly ever, and never on this day either)
Most people have never heard of this day. When we moved to AZ, no one celebrated it and there were no cards in the stores. I found it strange.
Now living in NC, same thing, nothing. No one knows about Sweetest Day except those who live or lived in the Midwest. 

Here is your lesson for the day:



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.[1] 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.”[2] Sweetest Day has also been referred to as a “concocted promotion” created by the candy industry solely to increase sales of sweets.[3]
