Why March 20th?

Every year on March 20, people commemorate Won't You Be My Neighbor Day.  Why that date?  Because it remember the late Fred McFeely Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003), better known as Mister Rogers, was an American television host, author, producer, and Presbyterian minister.

Mister Rogers as most of us knew his was the hugely well-liked host of the preschool television program "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," which aired from 1968 to 2001.  

Many people still regard "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" as the gold standard by which they judge all other children's television programs, despite the fact that it hasn't broadcast for the previous 21 years.  Those who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s are almost certain to have watched Mister Rogers go to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and sing songs with his puppet buddies because the show is so well-known.
