For the past fifteen years, Alaska resident Jeff Fowler has put up a dazzling display of holiday lights and playful characters at his home to show his holiday spirit. This year, however, he needed a little help to keep his annual tradition from going dark.
As the holiday season approaches, everyone is heading online to do their holiday shopping. During delivery, those cherished gifts may end up on a porch, front steps, or outside an apartment building – in plain sight of thieves.
In the spirit of the season, we wanted to share a few of our favorite stories from the Nextdoor community. We are grateful for and inspired by all of the neighbors out there who are creating happier and safer places to call home.
