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.
What if we all put our Christmas lights back up? Then we could get in the car and drive around and look at them. That seems like a fair social distancing activity.March 15, 2020
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.
Going all out, some people have put up their Christmas tree to continue the festive feeling indoors. Getting on board with all things festive, Hallmark Channel (opens in new tab) has even decided to add a series of Christmas movies to its offering, starting on 20 March.
