The Inspiration for "Be My Neighbor Day"

Mister Rogers began each episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood with his simple signature question in song: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”    

Daniel Tiger welcomes a new generation of children and families to his Neighborhood. In a special “Neighbor Day” episode, Daniel learns that it feels good to be neighborly and that one kind act can lead to many.  His first good deed starts a chain reaction of kindness all around the Neighborhood, resulting in the declaration of “Neighbor Day!”  

“Do something nice for your neighbor, do something nice for your friend.”
