While the coronavirus continues to cause stress and panic, some are shining light on hope with the use of Christmas lights.

Some Twitter users are calling on people to hang their Christmas lights up as a sign of hope during the coronavirus.

@Dan_Garcia76 posted a photo saying, "Let's face it, it sucks out there. Why not have something wonderful to look at while driving around."

@vanburenEdD posted a photo of some sparkling bushes with the message, "Yes, Christmas lights in March. There may be darkness in the world right now, but WE are the LIGHT."

The posts are being shared with a variety of different hashtags like #CoronaKindness, #LockedDownLightsUp, and #stayhomechallenge.
