Summary
Be sweet on Sweetest Day and hand out out candy to honor this nearly 100 year old holiday.

A lot of people assume Sweetest Day, the third Saturday in October, was created by greeting card companies.

But Hallmark said it was invented by Herbert Birch Kingston, an employee at a Cleveland candy company around 1922.

He gave candy and small gifts to orphans and shut-ins to show them that they were not forgotten, Hallmark spokesman Rachel Bolton said.
