Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October as a day to make someone happy. It is an occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick, the aged, and children who have lost their parents, but also friends, workmates, relatives and neighbors whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.
Over 60 years ago, when a Cleveland man noticed that some people, such as children who lost their parents and patients who lay in bed, too often felt forgotten and neglected(忽视), he developed in his mind the idea of showing them that they were remembered. He did this by giving them small gifts. With the help of his friends and neighbors, he gave those people small gifts on a Saturday in October. During the years that followed, other Clevelanders began to take part in the celebration, which came to be called “Sweetest Day”. Over time, the Sweetest Day idea of spreading cheer to the poor, the sick and children who had lost their parents was broadened to include everyone, and became an occasion for remembering others with a kind act or a small gift. Soon the idea spreaded to other cities all over the USA.
Sweetest Day is not based on any single group'sreligious beliefs or on a family relationship. It is a reminder that a thoughtful word or deed enriches life and gives it meaning.
Because for many people remembering takes the form of gift giving, Sweetest Day offers us the opportunity to show others that we care, in a positive(积极的) way.

Holiday in Sydney is a good choice for people trying to get away from cold winter days. You can spend Christmas, New Year, and Chinese New Year in Sydney. All hotels in Sydney are also prepared for business activities. The Christmas spirit is more wonderful when evening falls. Nightlife in Sydney is full of energy, but during holidays it owns a special taste.
White sandy beaches are located only within a short walk from hotels. You will find beach barbecues (烧烤), surfing, and diving under the sea very enjoyable. There are also public street festivals such as Chinese New Year between January and February. You need to book hotels in advance because they are often filled fast.
Running from Christmas to the New Year, numerous musical events are held in different places, from hotel restaurants to the Royal Botanical Gardens. Christmas carol (欢歌) performances are free for visitors to enjoy when the Sydney Youth Orchestra plays at the Royal Botanical Gardens.
Chinese New Year is one of Sydney's annual (每年的) attractions. 500,000 people will gather in the city, so if you are traveling to Sydney, this is a reason to extend your vacations. Hotels near Belmore Park offer food events during Chinese New Year, and Darling Harbor runs traditional Dragon Boat Races. Others offer tours to the Sze Yup Temple, a Taoist (道教) Church located in Evergreen.
Seasonal food is also offered at the restaurants, cafes, and room service. In addition, New Year brings the opportunity to celebrate dining with other guests at your hotel.
