Just over 100 years ago, a tradition began in the Midwest. People began giving out sweets and candies to those who were down and out, or to those who needed some encouragement. They named the day “Sweetest Day”, and the movement still exists today. It has now expanded to all kinds of acts of kindness. not just candy. The idea is that if you know someone who is going through a hard time, a sad time, or simply could use a pick-me-up, that on October 21, you do something nice, just to tell them “you’re the sweetest, and you deserve nice things to be done for you. ”
