Sweetest Day is the Third Sunday in October. This year it is October 15, 2011.
Sweetest Day is dedicated to the sweetheart in your life. It is a time to recognize that special someone - whether a husband or wife, girlfriend or boyfriend or young child.
Sweetest Day was founded around 1922 in Cleveland, Ohio by Herbert Birch Kingston. He was a local candy company employee. Herbert Birch Kingston wanted to bring cheer and joy to lives of children living in orphanages, those with illness or disabilities and others often forgotten. He began distributing candy and small gifts.
Whether celebrating the day with a loved one or bringing candy or gifts to children in need, take the opportunity to bring a smile to the face of someone special.
Abernook offers a variety of candy gifts, cookie gifts and small gift ideas that make a perfect gift this Sweetest Day! Go ahead, bring a smile to your loved one!
