Kenton knew all of Serinda's favorite candies and that she always, always shared with others. That's what makes her his most favorite friend. Well, his only really true friend, actually. Sweetest Day 2012 is coming this week! It is a day for doing something sweet for family members, friends, and acquaintances. It was started in Cleveland in 1922 by philanthropist and candy company employee Herbert Birch Kingston who distributed candy to orphans and shut-ins.
