Three Sweetest Day 2012 Dinner Ideas


Every day should be an opportunity to show your loved one(s) how much you care, yet, we often get caught up in our busy lives (and, realistically, getting showered with that kind of attention regularly could get to be a little much). That makes it all the more rewarding to dote and be doted on a few special times a year.

Sweetest Day is October 20 and is one of those times. It’s Valentine’s Day’s fall counterpart and described as “An occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.” The first Sweetest Day was created by a committee of 12 confectioners in Cleveland on October 8, 1921. Fast forward to today: The holiday is now more love-centric and widely celebrated—always on the third Saturday in October.
