“National Neighbor Day” is a national day in the United States that is celebrated on September 28 (some believe it is the 26th of September). This year National Neighbor Day 2020 will be also celebrated with full appreciation.
In the early 1970s, Becky Matson of Lakeside, Montana established a National Good Neighborhood Day as a day to network and recognize powerful leaders. On September 22, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed Proclamation No. 4601 establishing September 24, 1978 as National Good Neighbor Day, establishing that it must be observed: “with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
On April 28, 2004, the Senate approved a decision by Montana Senator Max Pocos to designate September 26 as National Neighbor Day.
