If you’re wondering what the heck kind of holiday Sweetest Day is supposed to be, well, we are too — so never fear, we have the lowdown on the holiday. Sweetest Day is now a primarily a holiday for the men. The idea is for women to give their boyfriends and husbands small gifts to commemorate their love. Commonly “suggested” gifts for Sweetest Day include, of course, candy! Sweetest Day is an original American holiday not based on any group’s religious tradition. It’s simply a reminder that a thoughtful word, deed or small gift enriches the life of the recipient as well as the person giving it.

GIFT

Legend has it that Sweetest Day was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio candy company employee who wanted to bring happiness to the lives of those who often were forgotten. Kingston and others distributed candy and small gifts to orphans, people confined to their homes and others to show them that someone cared. Like Valentine's Day, you can give loved ones in your life chocolates, candies or cards but the holiday has an added emphasis to helping other in need, either with material gifts or through moral support.
