Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day: Be neighborly to your neighbors

When it comes to holidays, February 7 has a little bit of something for everyone. Not only is it the delicious National Fettuccine Alfredo Day and the friendly Send a Card to a Friend Day, it is also Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day! No foolin'!

Created by the folks at Wellcat, this annual holiday reminds and encourages everyone to be neighborly to our neighbors. Whether yours is a crotchety curmudgeon, a nosey Nellie or a complete and utter stranger, today is all about being neighborly. And just in case you don't have the slightest clue who your neighbors happen to be, now is as good a time as any to go introduce yourself. Who knows - they could come in "handy" one day!

And while you're at it, why not be friendly to everyone today? Smile extra big or give a great big wave to everyone you meet on the street, at work, at school or in the neighborhood. Just remember, no birds or one-finger salutes allowed!
