Today is National Good Neighbor Day

Today is National Good Neighbor Day which, according to nationaltoday (dot) com, is a day where "we do fun activities to bond with our neighboring families. It’s a great way to break the ice and build long-lasting relationships for community development."

They go on to say, "neighbors can make or break your experience of living in an area. Being a good neighbor helps us build solid and long-lasting relationships. Neighbors are like umbrellas on a rainy day, lending a helping hand in times of emergency.

Previous generations tended to engage their neighbors in a lot of activities. They invited them to parties and balls, went riding with them, worked on their farms, invited them over for dinner, and took care of their homes whenever they went away. Nowadays, with busy schedules and technological advancements, we never really care much about or show interest in the family next door. This is why people live next to each other for years and still aren’t familiar."

But, it does not have to be this way. Check their site at this link for ideas of ways you might celebrate your neighbors today - and every day!
