It was said that the first observance of this Day was held on October 10, 1921, in Cleveland. It was the day where a committee of 12 candy makers led by C.C. Hartzell, gathered together and delivered 20,000 boxes of candies and chocolates. They had given the candies to the less-privileged people in the city. The film stars Theda Bara, and Ann Pennington had assisted the committee.
One another statement mentioned that in 1922, Herbert Birch Kingston a candy-store owner in Cleveland distributed candies and chocolates to several of the hospitals and orphanages in the area. It is celebrated in a similar way to Valentine’s Day in most locations. People exchanges popular gifts, cards, flowers, chocolates, and candy. People greet each other with other gifts of love to express their affection and love. It is a day for the women to treat their men by sharing romantic deeds or expressions.
