This is like a whole second Valentines Day that occurs in October.
It is basically only celebrated in Ohio and Michigan.

It started as a promotional stunt by a candy company in Cleveland in the 1920's.
They put a full-court press on in the media to create a day for you to buy your
"sweetest" a box of chocolate.   

Growing up in Pittsburgh I had never even heard of this, but when I got to
Michigan I learned it was a VERY big deal.  Married a gal from Michigan and
ended up on the hook for this AND Valentines Day every year.
