“Call me mad, but we just put up some Christmas lights outside… if I’m going to be self isolating I’m going to add light and joy to my world!” – Dimi Grillo
Christmas is more than two months past, but social media users are digging their lights and decorations back out of their hibernation for an off season sign of hope during the coronavirus outbreak.
As people across the country are working from home or are under quarantine or lock-down, many have taken to Twitter to share photos of their Christmas lights and to ask others to jump on the bandwagon.
One user wrote: “Christmas lights give me hope and joy. Every year, I look forward to seeing them put up. As a sign of hope and happiness, we’ve put some up. While we’re all having to stay in and away from each other, I thought these would help us all have something joyous and pretty to look at.”
