If you aren’t familiar with what Sweetest Day is, let us explain. This is one day during the year that is used to celebrate both kindness and appreciation. If you have a friend or loved one that you would like to show your gratitude for, this is your opportunity.

For the most part, people will send candy and balloons on Sweetest Day. However, many people like to send flowers instead to ensure that they are getting their message across. Before you choose which bouquet you would like to send to that special someone, we’d like to give you a little more information about this holiday and how it came to be. Continue reading below to uncover the true meaning of Sweetest Day.

What is Sweetest Day?

Each October on the third Saturday, Sweetest Day is observed. A simple holiday, Sweetest Day has a very rich history. It all began with a philanthropist and candy employee, Herbert Birch Kingston. Herbert realized that with all of his good fortunes in life, it was time to give back and brighten the lives of other people. Knowing that there are few things that make people happier than being acknowledged and appreciated, Herbert thought there should be a day on which people are recognized simply for being people. This is when Herbert decided to coin a day where the underprivileged would be given small gifts, candy and more.

This dream was made into a reality in October 1922 for the first time. With the help of some movie stars and his friends, Mr. Kingston hosted the first Sweetest Day in Cleveland. Chocolates and gifts were given to shut-ins, orphans and the homeless, leading to the day being an overall success.

Who Celebrates Sweetest Day?

While this “just because’ holiday began regionally and is mostly celebrated in the Great Lakes area, it has gained popularity all over the United States in recent years. Seeing as how this is a heart-based holiday, anyone on the planet could participate were they to find it in their heart to give a gift to someone who could use acknowledgment.

Celebrating This Day Yourself

When you are thinking about what you should do for Sweetest Day this year, there are plenty of options available to you. Some people really enjoy giving chocolate or other candy to several important people in their life. Showing that you care doesn’t have to be a huge gesture. Showing someone how much they mean to you doesn’t have to cost you a ton either. On the other hand, there are gifts that are a bit more costly that will be sure to send the message you are attempting to get across to those important people in your life. We would personally recommend that you send a beautiful bouquet or floral arrangement. Additionally, you could send a gourmet gift basket if you’re really wanting to go above and beyond for someone special.
