I don’t know about yours, but my calendar is filling up quick with whimsical holidays, ranging from Cheese Day to Merry-Go-Round Day to Fly a Kite Day. And while all those are important for living well, the following one really struck my fancy.
To celebrate the birthday of the late Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers), March 20 has been declared Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day. Neighbors across the nation are encouraged to wear their favorite sweaters; host neighborhood charity events; volunteer with local organizations; and participate in other activities to promote positive relationships within the community.
As Fred Rogers once said, “Imagine what our real neighborhoods would be like if each of us offered as a matter of course, just one kind word to another person. One kind word has a wonderful way of turning into many.”
How will you celebrate?
