Happy #SweetestDay! Yes, today is Sweetest Day, a day to share acts of #kindness with others and to see the kindness of the Spirit all around - and as we did when we saw this fawn and it’s mother in the yard of our urban hermitage. Sweetest Day is a celebration that falls during the third week in October. History tells us that this holiday dates to late 1916 when it was known as Candy Day. Although other reports claim it started in the early 1920’s. The official unofficial first #Sweetest Day began in Cleveland, Ohio on October 10, 1921. It was planned by confectioners and candy makers with a goal to serve orphans, the poor, and older folks.
Regardless of its history, the main point of Sweetest Day is to share acts of love and #kindness with others. Let’s enjoy this Sweetest Day by being #generous in a small or big way with others. How? #Pray for someone. #Give a small gift. Write a poem for someone special. Give the gift of kindness to yourself by posting some sweet memories in a journal. Give someone a #smile by saying: “Happy Sweetest Day!” in person or online. Share the gift of #joy and #love by letting others know: “I Love You!” For more ideas on sharing kindness and celebrating Sweetest Day visit our Sharing Kindness Page.
