The Sweetness of Sweetest Day
by Palindrome at 10:56 pm EDT, Oct 1, 2008

For the natives of Northeast United States,sweetest day comes as a holiday which is celebrated on the third Saturday of October. This day took birth in Cleveland in the year 1922 when Herbert Birch Kingston who was a philanthropist and a candy company employee, thought of bringing smiles on the faces of the poor,neglected and the forgotten. To execute this great thought of his, he took the help of his friend and distributed candies and gifts among the underprivileged group. This was an effort to convey to these people that they were equally important as others and their existence was well respected and cared for. This effort by Kingston was well appreciated and gradually with passing times, much of the Clevelanders joined in to make it a big and important occasion.
