Christmas has come early this year as many people have decorated their homes with Christmas lights to spread cheer during the coronavirus outbreak. With self-isolation quickly becoming the norm for many, fans of all things festive have dug out their Christmas lights and decorated their houses to add some positivity to what is otherwise, a pretty gloomy time. 

Taking to Twitter to share his idea, Lane Griddle suggested that people in self-isolation decorated their homes to provide something positive and cheerful to do and enjoy. He suggested driving around to see everyone else’s lights by car.

Getting on board with the idea, many people have joined forces on social media, sharing snaps of their festive homes using the hashtags #christmasinmarch and #lightsforlife.
