Christmas not coronavirus. People celebrate early due to COVID-19
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, not the self-isolating times of the COVID0-19 - as people take to the festive season for inspiration in the age of the coronavirus.
Many houses across America have put up their Christmas lights, in an effort of solidarity during self-isolation.
“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” said @LaneGrindle on Twitter.
The Tweet has been shared more than 2,500 times and has prompted several neighborhoods in the US to embrace the Christmas spirit.
Elsewhere, the Hallmark Channel has scheduled a Christmas movie marathon during self-quarantine.
Starting March 20th, the channel will begin airing and streaming Christmas films right up until Sunday evening.
Films will include stars such as Danica McKellar, Kristin Chenoweth, Torrey DeVitto, Holly Robinson Peete, Chad Michael Murray, Ryan Paevey, Brandoiun Routh, Adrian Grenier and Jesse Metcalfe.
