It's Sweetest Day! A day to be kind and sweet to everyone you meet. This world needs a little kindness and giving away sweet treats to make people smile is a great way to lift spirits.
A little history: Sweetest Day hails from all the way back in 1922 when a dozen of Cleveland’s candy companies banded together to make the day a little sweeter for some of the city’s most vulnerable people. they distributed more than 20,000 boxes of candy to “newsboys, orphans, old folks, and the poor.” People have been giving sweets to friends and family forever, it seems, but giving treats to brighten the spirits of people you don't know who need a smile is a powerful thing.
@kpeppz 's Northwest Bergen Lifestyle article on the Bon Appetit Cafe and Bakery in Mahwah is all about sweet things. Worth a stop to pick up your Sweetest Day, and every day, treats.
