There's a movement breaking out on Twitter to get us to put our Christmas lights back up as a way to lift our spirits during the COVID-19 crisis.

We spotted an article in House Beautiful about what is fast becoming a viral movement. People are posting the idea on Facebook and sharing it all over.

Early adopters have been active since March 15:

The tweets are including the hashtag #CoronaKindness, but there are a lot of tweets featuring positive responses to the pandemic, not just Christmas lights.

Many are using #LightsForLife.

And for any of us stuck at home telecommuting and self-quarantining, now there's something new to occupy yourself with.

Time to pull out those Christmas lights.
