Looking for holiday decorations in your neighborhood? Nextdoor has rolled out its annual holiday “cheer card,” where users can mark their home as decorated or find other festive setups.
“No matter what holiday you’re celebrating, get in the spirit by marking your decorated home on the Cheer Map with a colorful holiday icon that represents your seasonal style,” shared Shannon Toliver, communications manager at Nextdoor, in a blog. “From Christmas lights to Hanukkah displays, find the best and brightest outdoor holiday decorations in nearby neighborhoods.”
The map, sponsored by The Home Depot, allows users to tag their own holiday decorations or “plan the perfect sightseeing route to experience the holiday spirit in your community,” Toliver added.
