When: Third Saturday in October

Now here is a day dedicated just for your sweetie. It exists as an opportunity for you to recognize that sweet and special someone. It doesn’t matter who that person is, or what their relation to you. They just have to be "sweet" in order to get a little recognition.

Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio philanthropist and candy company employee started Sweetest Day. He wanted to bring happiness to orphans, shut-ins and under-privileged. His intent was to show these people that they were not forgotten. In 1922, he started this holiday by giving candy and small gifts. He often used movie stars to distribute the gifts.

The popularity of this holiday quickly spread. Today, is celebrated with loved ones and friends. However, we encourage you to follow the intent of the original holiday, and find ways to give candy and small gifts to those in need.

I got this from the Holiday Insight site.

Sweet Birthday Card

This Happy Birthday card represents sweet growth; the tree, the apples. I love the color combo, the browns, pink and aqua blue. I recycled a ugly store bought card that I would never use and just covered the front and back. Also, used a piece of cardboard from some packaging. Stamped the tree and sentiment on it. Enjoy!!

Paper: Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse, white cardstock, recycled cardboard and greeting card
Stamps: CTMH Annotations - Happy Birthday, Studio G - tree
Other: ribbon
