Sweetest Day

I had never heard of this up until recently. Apparently my best friend knew about it because she lives in the Great Lakes area. So, what is it? It's a day celebrating loved ones, kind of like Valentine's Day only instead of cards, you would give things such as candy, baked goods, or just a gift offering a sweet gesture to those you care about. I believe the "holiday" started as a day devoted to those in need, the sick, elderly, etc, but of course that soon changed. I thought it would be a fun thing for the kids to learn about and do something for sweetest day for those they appreciate too. I think it teaches them a good lesson and it's something they can share and pass on in the years to come.
