I think we can all agree that 2008 has been a year that will be remembered as an historic one. But as we move into 2009 we also can also agree we’re in a crummy economy. So how do we keep our spirits high this holiday season and still reign in our spending on tight budget? (more…)

Heightened stress levels around the holidays will soon be here. Thanksgiving marks the beginning with the height or our stress being felt at Christmas and Hanukkah and not culminating until the New Years noisemakers are silent. From Thanksgiving through New Years Day we all tend to stress a bit, when we have to plan special meals and shop for all those gifts and things. Oh My! But we can do a few things to make it a bit easier. (more…)

Happy Sweetest Day Cookie Bouquet

Happy Sweetest Day Cookie Bouquet

You may not all know this, but Ohioans are responsible for starting Sweetest Day. To be more precise Clevelanders started the holiday. It was started by a nice man named Herbert Kingston.

He was a candy maker in Cleveland and thought that there were a lot of deserving people who should be given the opportunity to taste the sweet delights. So along with some friends, he started distributing his candy to shut-ins, home bound people, orphans and other underprivileged Cleveland residents who he thought might have been forgotten and needed some joy brought into their lives – in a sweet way.

With Sweetest Day starting out as part of this very selfless local observance, it’s popularity soon spread throughout the country and blossomed into the holiday we observe today as Sweetest Day. Ohio, of course, is still the all time core location for popularity and observance. And today, the Sweetest Day holiday has evolved taking on a more romantic connotation for offering our romantic wishes or gestures of friendship to those special people in our lives. Sweetest Day is now observed each year and celebrated in October. The traditional observance date varies from year to year with the third Saturday in October being set aside for annual Sweetest Day celebrations.

Since opening my gift basket and gourmet foods business http://www.MyFastBasket.com, I have been introduced to several of our country’s lesser known holidays, such as Cow Appreciation Day. Surprisingly enough, I found that this peculiar holiday is celebrated annually by a chain of fried chicken restaurants in an effort to get people to eat more chicken, so it has its purpose. Go Cows!

After opening my gift basket and gourmet foods business www.myfastbasket.com I realized there are many, many reasons to celebrate and they’re not just birthdays and anniversaries. There are national and regional days of observance and dates to honor our favorite people or events. Some are just amusing like Cow Appreciation day. Yes, there really is a Cow Appreciation Day to honor our bovine friends. I found a National Kids Day (which I’m embarrassed to say I never knew about). Sorry Kids! There’s a Truck Drivers Appreciation Day and Greatful Dead fans abound in celebration of Jerry Garcia’s birthday. (more…)
