History of Sweetest Day

History of Sweetest Day

Sweetest Day is a holiday with a centralized focus. It is most popular in the Great Lakes region of the United States. It is a holiday that exists to give presents to loved ones and friends. Common gifts include greeting cards, candy, and flowers.

Sweetest Day was first created in Cleveland in 1921. Planned by a committee made up of confectioners, it was a day in which boxes of candy were distributed to the less fortunate of the city. Cleveland continues to be the center of this holiday, which occurs regularly on the third Saturday in October.

The holiday is considered a mix of friendly gifts and romantic ones, and has some similarity to Valentine’s Day. It continues to be a holiday mostly marked by chocolate and candy, as that is where it originated.
