Thanking your boss on this holiday is a great way to strengthen your relationship. Everyone loves to receive positive affirmation and to hear that they are doing a good job.

Hallmark is known for their greeting cards sold in stores all across the United States. Here is what they record as the interesting history behind Sweetest Day.

Legend has it that Sweetest Day was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio, candy company employee who wanted to bring happiness to the lives of those who often were forgotten. Kingston and others distributed candy and small gifts to orphans, people confined to their homes and others to show them that someone cared.

In the early 1930s, movie stars got into the act. Ann Pennington distributed candy to 2,200 Cleveland newspaper boys, and Theda Bara gave candy to theater-goers and patients in Cleveland hospitals.

This holiday continues to grow in popularity and has spread all over the United States. Today it is mostly celebrated between significant others. Romantic gestures of love and gratitude are displayed through cards, flowers, and candy. Hallmark states that 80 percent of their Sweetest Day cards have a “love” or “romance” theme.
