How can the 12 Days of Christmas inspire your local expertise?

12 days of ChristmasWith the holidays just around the corner, we can’t help but play right into the celebrations, spirit and songs of this busy and special time.

The holidays can mean a quieter time for REALTORS®People are scurrying around and trying to find just the right gift or place to eat or activity to do. But that also means you have time to help others make the most of the season. After all, you are a local expert!

Using the Relola app, you can share locations and count down the 12 days of “local” Christmas -- and help bring some “happy” to the holidays in your community!


On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a Partridge in a Pear Tree...

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Two Turtle Doves…

But if fluffy and furry is more your speed, cuddling pups and kittens at your local shelter is an easy (and free!) way to share some holiday snuggles.

On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Three French Hens…

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Four Calling Birds...

Calling… who’s calling? Your smartphone! Think of the “there when you need it” mobile phone repair shop. You’ll likely be a lifesaver to the local friend who got the new iPhone as a gift, but then accidently dropped it.

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Five Golden Rings...

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Six Geese a-Laying...

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Seven Swans a-Swimming…

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Eight Maids a-Milking…

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Nine Ladies Dancing...

Inspire your local network to strap on their dancing shoes! The new year is perfect for new experiences like taking a few ballroom dance lessons. Add a dance studio to your map and inspire folks to kick up their heels.


On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Ten Lords a-Leaping…

Many of us struggle with ways to pause and really reflect on the reasons behind our holiday seasons. Help connect locals to special, spiritual celebrations at local churches, synagogues, temples and community centers all throughout the season by adding them to your map of local resources.


On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 11 Pipers Piping…

From Christmas caroling to ringing in the new year, music makes the season merry! And there are so many places to grab a seat for great live music show this time of year. Support local musicians with a pin on your map!


On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 12 Drummers Drumming…

The percussion line from high school bands, spunky moves from local dance schools and a sneak peak at Santa’s sleigh all make the season bright. Pin the best spot to watch the parade in your local community.


Now you can celebrate the holiday season and map your local expertise. Drop a pin on the local features your community has to offer. And share your local holiday finds with buyers and sellers!
