Cities in one way or another continue to implement safeguards to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
But as authorities struggle with Covid-19, the pandemic and all the problems that come with it create problems in everyday life.
To cheer up themselves and the community in which they live, people have started turning on Christmas lights again.
"Great idea. We re-include the lamps as a sign of hope and the wonderful mind of my 10-year-old son. "My youngest son was bored today and said, "can we put Christmas lights on our tree outside to cheer us up?" Great idea buddy. Lights are on tonight as a sign of hope and the sweet mind of my 10 year old. #Rhodeisland #hope #lovemysons #Christmas #Cumberland pic.twitter.com/qhVjeuLc02— Mike Griffin (@rhodyknowsbest) March 16, 2020
Mike's example was followed by other people who have started turning on Christmas lights into their homes and shared photos on social media.
The roofs, windows, and yards are illuminated, making the quarantine a bit more lively.
My Christmas lights are back on, cause this is what I need right now. ☘️🎄 pic.twitter.com/buOl0cTNDq— Pam Swan (@prairieswan) March 18, 2020
Today a few of my neighbours decided we needed a bit more light in this dark time and decided to turn their Christmas lights back on. I hope it brings a smile to you face like it did mine. pic.twitter.com/MukgY36FTj— Nadine (@NadineGB204) March 18, 2020
