Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day
I’ve always thought of March as a month of hope. Spring is on its way. It’s been a whole year since the pandemic changed our lives, and we’re just now beginning to see hopeful signs of returning to some kind of new normal.
For us at the Fred Rogers’ Center, this has always been a time to celebrate because we’re coming up on Fred’s birthday, March 20. We call it “Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day.” A number of years ago we started it as an annual tradition to honor Fred on that day — by wearing a sweater and doing something neighborly.
