Celebrating Sweetest Day with Your Love

Celebrating Sweetest Day with Your Love

This American holiday, Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October each year and is coming up fast – this year celebrated on Oct. 19th.

Sweetest Day dates back to 1922 when Herbert Birch Kingston, a candymaker in Cleveland, Ohio, decided to distribute candy and small gifts to orphans, people confined to their homes and others, according to a history posted by Hallmark. Kingston’s goal was to bring happiness to people who often feel forgotten, and in the decades since, the idea of spreading Sweetest Day cheer has spanned from family members to significant others and from coworkers to acquaintances.

A great way to spread some love and friendship this Sweetest Day is with a floral or candy gift from Coles Flowers.
