Did you know that Sweetest Day was born in Cleveland, Ohio in the early 1920’s when candy company employee Herbert Birch Kingston wanted to do something nice for the city’s orphans and sick and on a Saturday in October gave out candy to them, and the idea took off from there.  The holiday has evolved into more of a romantic one, but for more information about this little holiday originally dedicated to spreading cheer, check out these links:
