Sweetest Day Gifts
Sweetest Day continues to gain popularity across the nation with its good-natured premise and inspirational beginnings. Started around 1922 in Cleveland, Ohio by Herbert Birch Kingston, this holiday is rooted in the desire to celebrate individuals who are often overlooked. Kingston decided to begin spreading cheer to the underprivileged by distributing candy and small gifts to children in orphanages, those with sickness or disabilities and others who are often forgotten.
Over the years, others joined in, including celebrities. Soon it was declared an official holiday in Cleveland, Ohio and has since begun to gain popularity, especially in the Great Lakes region. Today, it is considered a celebration of the wonderful sweetness that people can bring to our lives. Gifts exchanged are usually similar to those given on Valentine’s Day, including cards, candy and small mementos. This year, it is celebrated on Saturday, October 20th.
