Nextdoor and Hallmark Channel partner to celebrate the holidays with the Cheer Map

The Cheer Map is an interactive neighborhood guide to share and discover the best holiday decorations around town.  

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, December 1, 2020 – Today, Nextdoor’s annual Cheer Map is back to help neighborhoods shine even brighter this season. In partnership with Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas, a favorite holiday tradition with original movies all season long, neighbors can turn to the Cheer Map to share plans to decorate their homes and find which nearby neighborhoods have the most holiday spirit. 

With so many people staying local this year,  it is more important now than ever to bring a little extra cheer to the neighborhood. In fact, the pandemic has prompted many neighbors to decorate earlier than usual. A Nextdoor poll of over 120,000 neighbors across the country showed that 70% put up holiday decorations in November, and 22% were decked out before Thanksgiving. Nextdoor and Hallmark Channel are thrilled to join forces to spark joy and light up neighborhoods everywhere. No matter which holiday they celebrate, neighbors can get in the spirit by marking their home on the Cheer Map, then exploring the map to see which houses will have holiday displays for a safe, contact-free sightseeing festivity. 

The Cheer Map is available nationwide in the United States, Australia and Canada throughout December. Neighbors can tap into the Nextdoor App or visit to get in the holiday spirit and celebrate safely.
