Beginning in October, neighbour conversations related to holiday planning pop 3.2X as they start thinking about the holiday season. That means neighbours are asking for and sharing recommendations about favorite local places to fulfill all of their holiday needs, from home decor, to party planning, to yard cleanup, to gift giving, and more. 

In November, neighbours actively prepare their homes for the holidays. Search queries for “Christmas lights” increase 147%, “window washing” grows  44%, and “house cleaning” pops 36%. If you own a home services business, Nextdoor is the place to connect with neighbours looking for your services.
