Origin of the Sweetest Day

On October 10, 1921, the first Sweetest Day was celebrated in Cleveland, Ohio. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s edition of October 8, 1922, the Sweetest Day in the Year Committee, chaired by candy maker C.C. Hartzell, planned the event. The committee distributed over 20,000 boxes of candy to “newsboys, orphans, old folks, and the poor” in Cleveland. The committee was assisted in the distribution of candy by some of the biggest movie stars of the day, including Theda Bara and Ann Pennington. Wikipedia

Sweetest Day is an October Moveable Feast.
