News: I forgot my phone when I went out and about in Southington today so no pictures. I also thought my foot was getting better, but as I walked from Goodwill to Price Chopper (next plaza over) my foot was in a lot of pain and I was walking with a limp. My foot is still in a lot of pain at 7:30PM Thursday 10/19. - Brammy

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.
