Celebrating Good Neighbor Day in San Diego on September 28th

September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day. Each year, it is held on this date as a way to recognize the importance of forming relationships with those around us. It's good for the human connection as well as for building community and keeping neighborhoods safe and in good shape. Many people have become friends with their neighbors, enjoying cookouts together and events like block parties. Kids grow up and go to school together. It's what ties us together. And, it's more important than ever because we are losing some of that human connection by focusing on online friendships and relationships. Unfortunately, since people move so often and the recession in recent years has led to the loss of homes not to mention many people often commute, getting to know our neighbors doesn't happen as much as it should. This is an opportunity to knock on a neighbor's door and introduce yourself. It might even be good to deliver a small gift so they know how you much you appreciate them -- that they keep an eye on the house while you are away or help keep the area looking nice. Here are some gift ideas for Good Neighbor Day that we
