This October make sure you do not forget to pay tribute to those you love and those who work hard to provide you with the love and support you need to be successful at life. The reason for this is because October 16th will mark the eighty-eighth annual Sweetest Day. If you have not heard of this holiday or you simply don’t know about the story behind the creation of this special day, then this article is intended for you. Sweetest Day is observed each and every third Saturday in the month of October. Its origins can be traced back to Cleveland, Ohio, where, in 1922, the employee of a large candy company decided that it would be a good idea to honor those who suffered from handicaps, those who were orphaned, or those who were otherwise of need. The man’s name was Herbert Birch Kingston.
