Sweetest Day cards are starting to show up in the stores.
What is Sweetest Day? (you might ask)
Back in 1922, twelve Cleveland committeemen got creative and came up with the holiday. It was meant to be an “occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.” Over the years it has expanded into the romantic realm (like a second Valentine’s Day).
Giving cards, flowers and (especially) candy to those you appreciate and love is the most common expression, though any expression is good.
This year Sweetest Day is October 19th (I’ll remind y’all again a few days beforehand). Take advantage of this holiday and romance your man. You have a whole month pick up a card and his favorite candy (or plan other fun).
Candy is dandy… Ogden Nash
