Have you ever wondered exactly what is Sweetest Day and why we celebrate it? The American holiday encourages people to express their love and appreciation for others and dates back to the early 1900’s.

Sweetest Day is often referred to as a Hallmark holiday but its origin is rooted in the early 1920’s. Legend traces the holiday’s start back to a candy company in Cleveland, Ohio that wanted to spread joy to people who were often forgotten about by giving them free candy and showing them that they were cared about, too. The candy company and some actors passed out thousands of candy boxes to newspaper boys, the elderly, orphans, the poor, and patients in Cleveland hospitals.

Today we celebrate Sweetest Day on the third Saturday in October every year and though often thought of as a holiday for lovers, the Sweetest Day idea of spreading cheer has expanded to include everyone from lovers to family members, friends, coworkers, and even acquaintances.  

Sweetest Day ideas should be a simple reminder that a kind deed, small gift, or thoughtful word can positively impact people’s lives. Though the celebration of the holiday has spread throughout the country it is still most popular in the midwest region of the United States, including Illinois. Sweetest Day is similar to Valentine’s Day and is often celebrated with gifts of cards, flowers, chocolate, candy, and jewelry.
