Sweetest Day is created by Herbert Birch Kingston in Cleveland, Ohio. Around 1921, he wanted to create a festival dedicated to spreading happiness to the neglected in society. He took on the responsibility of propagating the joy to local orphans, people locked up at home, and the elderly, and gave them food. As the festival develops, more and more people participate in it.
Nowadays, the Sweetest Day also remains most popular in its birthplace of Ohio, and usually, people in the Midwest celebrate this festival. The ways to take part in the festival have changed as time went by. It is a little similar to Valentine's Day, but with much less pressure.
The Sweetest Day is coming up this Saturday. Do you have ideas for the celebrations? Giving candy, heartfelt wishes, or doing small acts to others are the typical ways to celebrate Sweetest Day. But these are certainly not the only ways to celebrate. Here are some ways to show how much you care about the people in your life.
For Your significant other
Do simple things like cross out some things on your significant other's list, go out on a date, make a delicious dinner, buy a small gift, or share their favorite dessert, which can make your loved one have a good mood for a day. If you have received a card at that festival, then you are lucky. 80% of Sweet Day greeting cards are about love or romance.
For Friends or family
In our busy lives, maybe we have neglected the family and friends who accompany us. Why not make a plan and spend some time with someone you like on the Sweetest Day? Whether eating together, playing games together, or watching a movie, this will show that you care about them.
Children always look forward to festivals more, and they are easier to satisfied. Even just some candies can make them happy. But if time permits, you can create an extra sugary Sweetest day by spending some time in the kitchen making some cakes together. If you're tight on time, going on a quick ice cream run could be a perfect alternative.
Making Someone Else
If you want to celebrate Sweetest Day the way it was intended to, do what you want. A small act of love can have a huge impact.
