Sweetest Day is Saturday, Oct. 19 this year, a day to celebrate your love for your significant other as well as friends and family.
Sweetest Day got its start in Cleveland in the early 1920s when a local candy company employee gave out treats to orphans and those in need of some extra love, according to Hallmark. It always falls on the third Saturday in October.
