Sweetest Day is celebrated every year on the third Saturday in October.
The origin of Sweetest Day can be traced back to 1921, when a group, called The Sweetest Day in the Year Committee, distributed thousands of boxes of candy to people less fortunate.
Some people say that Sweetest Day originated from candy companies trying to sell more candy... but it's the people who have been spreading joy on this day for nearly a century that I like to think about.
Today people often celebrate this holiday, by showing love and affection to those closest to them... a lot like Valentine's Day.
If someone makes you smile when you think about them, then it's a great opportunity to give them a token of your affection, such as a homemade card, candy or flowers.
Modern Sweetest Day ideas are often romantic. Women often celebrate with romantic Sweetest Day gifts for him and many people indulge in simple but sweet Sweetest Day poems (here's a sweet one) and other sweet and romantic ideas.
Sweetest day would be a fun day to give someone you love a delicious homemade truffle wrapped in a cute homemade origami gift box, or perhaps a homemade candy bouquet. Whatever you choose to do, I'm sure it will be sweet.
