Hooray! It’s the best time of year!
But wow it’s busy. 👀
So let’s make this easy!
You’ve got your 10 (or so) merriest, most-wintry-wonderland, sparkly-est, best decorated, most-lit Christmas homes and business fronts identified. (And if you don’t, no worries! Check out this link for tips on locating these spots fast, without even leaving your home.)
Google maps driving directions are integrated into the Built Story app, so your community will easily find the stops you curate!
Ready to (quickly & easily) take your tour to the next level?
At each home (i.e. tour stop) you can choose to add text, photos, audio and video. (Audio and video are *absolutely optional*) But if you want to sprinkle some extra merry into your tour, feel free to use any of the below!
All of the links you see here are free for you to access, and also copyright-free. Enjoy!

If you have your own photos of the houses you are including – great! But, below are some great stock images that you are welcome to use in addition to your own photos, or instead of:
Other pointers: Photos uploaded to Built Story have a 5MB maximum. Should be JPG or PNG, and cropped square or landscape is recommended.
Want to add some Christmas cheer? Here are some free tunes you can upload! People can enjoy while they are in their car, enjoying the view from the window.
- Wassail Song
- Gloria in D Major
- The Lark from Children's Album (less traditionally holiday, but still great for the occasion...)
Please note - uploaded audio files to the Built Story platform should be in MP3. (Great news - all of the files listed above are available here in MP3 format.)
When people are stopped outside a home, a short, sparkly video is a fun touch. Below are some free ones you may be interested in:
- Snowman, Blue
- Christmas Tree Pan
- Pop up Trees Green
- Happy Holidays
- Blue Winter Background
- Merry Christmas!
Please note - For best results, do include videos that are in landscape mode. Must be in an MP4 format. Most of the above are. But if you do need to convert a file, here's an easy tool.
Drop some of these throughout your stops…and you’ll be sure to bring big smiles to your community this December ☃️ Not finding exactly what you want above? Feel free to add anything else you find or create. And watch those tour sales just take off!
We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Happy creating! ⭐
