Honor Our Vets

 Honor Our VetsHonor Our Vets!

What does Veterans Day stand for? It’s a celebration to honor America’s veterans who have served in the Armed Forces for their patriotism, love of their country, and their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Veterans Day is also known as the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month aka Armistice Day. However in 1978, President Gerald R. Ford signed a new law returning this day back to Veterans Day because it carried significant historical and patriotic value to Americans and veterans that deserved to be recognized.

It’s time to stand up and thank those men and women, moms and dads, brothers and sisters who have sacrificed so much. Thank those that have served and continue to serve and protect our country. Show a little appreciation to those you know and make their Veterans Day a memorable one. Put a sweet smile on their faces by giving back. Make up a personalized gift, a candy basket, a care package or more.

Celebrate Parent’s Day

 

Celebrate Parent's Day

Why celebrate Parent’s Day?

Remember falling off your bicycle and skinning your knee? Baking cookies with mom? Dad teaching you how to play softball? Or having to call mom and dad at 1 a.m. asking them to come and get you on the side of the road because your car broke down? These are only a fraction of the reasons why we celebrate our parents on . Yes we all have our embarrassing moments, but we learned a valuable lesson from that moment. Funny part is we will remember them and share them with our kids when we get older.

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs around. Parents should be considered the best jugglers of all times! Between soccer practices, piano lessons, baseball practice, swimming lessons and having dinner on the table by six. All this and still working 40 plus hours a week at their jobs.

The fourth Sunday in July has been set aside to honor both our parents. Similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, it’s time to honor them together. They are some of the most important and influential people in the uprising of yesteryear’s youth, today’s young adults, and the continuing education we as adults sometimes take for granted.

Celebrate those hard working busy parents and show them that their sacrifices did not go unnoticed. Uplift and celebrate family. Whether they are your step-parents, grandparents, or adopted parents, let Candy Concepts Inc. help you celebrate parent’s day by connecting you to a few products that will create memories for years to come.

To look the word “parent” up in a combination of dictionaries you will find: father and/or mother; a source or origin of a living organism; a person who has a child; be or acts as a mother/father to someone. In the urban dictionary parent definition is as follows: the chains around your ankles until you’ve managed to a) runaway b) obtain a stable job and stable income c) die or d) turn 18.

If you have individuals in your life that fit into any of those definitions; whether they are step-parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, a single parent, or adopted parents; they are your parents.
