Did you know that today, October 20, 2018 is Sweetest Day? Being from the West Coast, I’m not actually familiar with the holiday. After doing a little research I found that the holiday is mainly celebrated in the Great Lakes region, although it is growing in popularity. What originally began as a day to do something nice for the less fortunate. Candy and small gifts were passed out in orphanages. Today it has evolved into a day for celebrating your loved ones with greeting cards and candy.
While I’m all for holidays that involve the giving of chocolate, I think it would be sweet (no pun intended) to do something nice for someone.
