Some unusual national celebration days are National Sweetest Day, National Online Bank Day, National Motorcycle Ride Day, National Taco Day and National Techies Day. However, it is important to note that unusual national holidays are not typically endorsed by government or educational institutions.
National Sweetest Day falls on the third Saturday of October. According to Hallmark.com, Sweetest Day was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee. Kingston and others delivered candy and gifts to orphans, the homeless and those confined to their homes in an attempt to show them that there were people who cared about them.
