15 Heartwarming Stories About Good Neighbors

by twistedsifter

I think a lot of people don’t even know their neighbors these days…

But if you’re like my dad, on the other hand, you know all of them, and have a strict friend/enemy list onto which each one has a slot.

But either way, we can all appreciate the truly GOOD neighbors, which is what makes these posts from Reddit so special.

1. A burning fire

It’s bad, but you can make it a little bit better.

There’s a perfect one in every neighborhood, and not all the owners are as cool as this.
