A few months after I moved into my house, my shed blew down and took out the side fence. It happened to be Christmas Day night, so Boxing Day, I'm tapping at my neighbour's door going "Hi, I'm your new neighbour and we have a broken fence, oh and by the way, Merry Christmas!" Would have been good to have had a plate of something to take with me then!! LOL

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Doing something unexpected for a neighbor is the surest way to create new freinds. A freind of mine had a problem with a neighbor, and my freind and his meighbor didn't get along at all. About ten years ago, we received 5 feet of snow in one day and a night. The neighbor, part of an elderly couple, hunkered down in their home until the storm passed. My freind, took it upon himself to shovel a path for them from their front door to their driveway, and removed the snow from the driveway as well. The neighbor was pleasantly surprized, which broke the ice between them, and my freind and his neighbor became great freinds and still are to this day.

This is the Christmas season. Do something good, and unexpected for your neighbor. At the very least, it will leave you feeling good about yourself. And if a great freindship develops, then your reward will far surpass your efforts.
