In a neighbourhood, it’s an absolute blessing to have good neighbours. Not all of us are so lucky. Even better than having good neighbours, is BEING a good neighbour. Do you make sure to keep your noise down? Do you make sure your trash is neat and your yard doesn’t encroach on their space? Then you’re probably a good neighbour! Neighbours are the people we need around for a helping hand in emergencies or to collect out packages when we aren’t home. So maintaining neighbourly ties is extremely important. That’s the aim of this national observance, to encourage us all to have and keep good relationships with our neighbours. Bake up a cake and take it next door, or send slices to each house on your street. Whatever it is that you think needs to be done, go ahead and do it, make your neighbours smile today!
When Is National Good Neighbor Day?
