Nextdoor's Cheer Map helps you find the best holiday decorations

It's not just the most wonderful time of the year, it's time for Nextdoor's annual holiday Cheer Map, sponsored by The Home Depot, is back to add some sparkle to neighborhoods this season. No matter which holiday they celebrate, neighbors can get into the spirit by marking their decorated home on the Cheer Map with a colorful holiday icon that represents their seasonal style. From Christmas lights to menorah displays, find the best and brightest outdoor holiday decorations in nearby neighborhoods.



According to a recent poll on Nextdoor, 90% of neighbors plan to decorate this holiday season. Similar to last year, neighbors jump-started the festivities — 70% put up holiday decorations in November and 21% decked the halls with holiday lights and displays before Thanksgiving.* With the Cheer Map, neighbors can plan the perfect sightseeing route to experience their community's celebratory spirit.


To help neighborhoods shine even brighter this holiday season, Nextdoor teamed up with The Home Depot to show nearby store locations on the Cheer Map where neighbors can easily find everything they need to make the holidays fun, festive, and low-stress. From beautiful décor including live trees and inflatables to great gift ideas for everyone on your list. For the first time, the companies have also included a holiday how-to guide on the map featuring décor inspiration and gift guides.


A survey of adults in the United States conducted on behalf of Nextdoor and The Home Depot found:


83% of those decorating this year plan on keeping their decorations up throughout December, with 42% not taking down their décor immediately after the New Year

The majority of U.S. adults (54%) don't mind if neighbors leave their outdoor holiday decorations up past January 1

Only 17% prefer all white holiday lights over multi-colored holiday lights

Roughly half (49%) plan to explore their own neighborhood to enjoy holiday lights and décor**

Neighbors in the United States can find the Cheer Map on the Nextdoor app or by visiting nextdoor.com/cheer to locate the best holiday lights and decorations in nearby neighborhoods.
