There is no holiday as 'sweet' as this one, literally.
'Sweetest Day', which happens to be this Saturday, 18 October, takes place annually to celebrate "sweetness" – something that makes one's eyes roll with excitement.
Observed in eleven states of the US after it was first created in 1921, Sweetest Day has also been referred as "concocted promotion" created by the candy industry to increase its sales of sweets. But the occasion has evolved over the years as a day to bestow romantic deeds or expressions to the loved ones.
So here are 10 sweetest quotes you could share with your loved one. And they are sure to make you nothing less sweet than candies:
