Sweetest Day is something that started in Cleveland, Ohio in 1922. The idea came to a chocolate company employee to deliver chocolates to the less fortunate. The idea quickly spread to several chocolatiers who delivered chocolates to nursing homes, orphans, etc. Over the years husbands and boyfriends would take a box of chocolates and sometimes flowers to their sweetheart. Today it has ballooned into weekend getaways and larger gifts than just a box of chocolates.
