Sweetest Day??? Does any one observe this "holiday?"
This morning I received an email from a florist reminding me that "Sweetest Day" is this Saturday. I knew the card sellers have been pushing "Grandparents' Day" and "Children's Day" but "Sweetest Day?" It threw me for a loop. (Seriously, isn't every day Children's Day when you're a kid?)
Wiki had this to say: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweetest_Day
Although the article says it's observed in the southern as well as northern states, and especially in Texas, I've lived in the south off and on my whole life & I've never run across anyone who uses this particular day to give to the poor, give candy to friends and loved ones, etc.
Is this really a regional observance, or is this just another grab for money being made by retailers?
