Happy Sweetest Day! Never heard of it? Sweetest Day is a holiday that is celebrated the 3rd Saturday in October. It began 60 years ago when candy man Herbert Birch Kingston from Cleveland, OH wanted to do something about the city’s orphans. He felt that they were neglected and forgotten and conceived an idea to have them remembered. With help from his friends he distributed candies and small remembrances on this Saturday in October. Thus, Sweetest Day was born. Many treat this as a 2nd Valentine’s Day to spoil their sweeties. In traditional spa fashion, Sweetest Day is a popular day to spa with your sweetie, and it serendipitously falls during Spa Week this year. In other words… Sweetest Day + Spa Week = Couples Spa Day for $100 The Couples Room at Deva Spa, NYC A couple spas are offering Couples-centric Spa Week Treatments, such as: Nusta Spa – Washington, DC 202.530.5700 50 Min Couples Therapy Massage Lesson and Session The Spa Room – Washington, DC 202.241.6095 90 Min Massage 101 Session (Semi-Private Couples Massage Instruction) Many Spa Week spas have lovely couples rooms.
