Happy SWEETest Day! (For some reason, I feel the need to add Y'all to that greeting)
What is SWEETest Day? Good question. I’ve never observed it before. Have you?
Here’s what I copied from Wikepedia:
Sweetest Day is an observance celebrated primarily in the Great Lakes region, and parts of the Northeast United States, on the third Saturday in October. It is described by Retail Confectioners International as an "occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember husbands, boyfriends,the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed." Sweetest Day has also been referred to as a "concocted promotion" created by the candy industry solely to increase sales of sweets.
I kind of believe the second definition/explanation, but really like the first one. So either way, it’s SWEETest Day!
Today, I’m using it to celebrate the SWEET trilogy! And when I celebrate, I always want to give something away. So there’s the deal, for a chance to win a signed copy of both SWEET JUSTICE and SWEET REVENGE and a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card, name your favorite LCR heroine and why you love her.
I’ll collect comments all weekend and will announce the winner on Recommend Monday.
Have a great SWEETest day, everyone!
