About Neighbor Appreciation Day

February 13, 2016 is Neighbor Appreciation Day in Seattle and this is your chance to celebrate the neighbors on your street, block, and community! Neighbor Appreciation Day began more than 20 years ago as a way to reach out, create new friends, and express thanks to our neighbors who make Seattle such a great place to live. Anyone can participate – from planning an event to inviting your neighbor for coffee. Here are some ways you can be a part of Neighbor Appreciation Day:

History

In 1995, Phinney Ridge activist Judith Wood suggested that the City designate “a special day to celebrate the goodness in those around us and to reach out and strengthen our bonds to each other.” Mayor Norm Rice proclaimed the Saturday before Valentine’s Day as Neighbor Appreciation Day, and the observance has grown every year since.
