Originating in Cleveland in 1922, Sweetest Day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee who wanted to bless orphans and shut-ins by distributing candy and treats to them. Even in the midst of the Great Depression, Kingston was able to bring happiness to people whom society had forgotten. Today, Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October with gifts of flowers and candy for loved ones, sweethearts and close friends as well as those in hospitals or shelters. Gordon Boswell Flowers has everything you need to gift those around you with the sweetest treats for Sweetest Day.
