How to see (and share) the best holiday lights in Colorado with the 'Near Me' section of the 9NEWS app

Upload photos of the best Christmas lights in Colorado using the Near Me map in the 9NEWS app.

The most magical time of year is upon us, and even though the holiday season will be different in 2020, there is one thing we can all count on. 

Coloradans will go all-out when it comes to Christmas lights (they do it every year!), and there's no more socially distant holiday activity than enjoying the season from the safety of your own car, with your own household. 

That's why we want your help! Show your fellow Coloradans the best lights in your neighborhood by uploading them to the "Near Me" section of the 9NEWS app. Your photos will be added to a statewide map highlighting the best places to see light displays around the state.

Here are written instructions as well: 

- Open up your 9NEWS app and scroll until you find the holiday lights section. Here, you'll find the option to add your photos and videos to the map or you can go directly to the map. 

- To contribute, tap the "submit" button. Upload a photo or video and the location where it was taken so others know where to find the amazing lights! 

- Back in the app, you can check out the map by tapping on the holiday lights map button. 

- Once on the map, tap "filters" and scroll down to select "Holiday Lights Map." This will show you only the photos and videos of holiday lights that people have submitted. (Don't forget to check your map filters later to see everything else submitted to Near Me.) 

- Another way to submit your photo or video and to see the holiday lights map without scrolling, tap Near Me on the bottom right-hand corner of the app. Tap "filters" and scroll down to select "Holiday Lights Map." 

- Head back to the map, and start planning your next adventure!
