A sign of hope and unity in a time of social distance.
Not only is this a cute idea and fun for the whole family, but it allows you to maintain contact with your neighborhood, while keeping a safe distance. Then, when all the lights are up, take the kids on a car ride to look at all the other houses for a risk-free outing.
The lights are bringing people together at a safe and reasonable distance. It is a way to show that we are all in the same boat, as far as the coronavirus is concerned, and it’s a way to share a much-needed laugh.
So when you’re done with whatever work you can do from home, consider breaking out the ladder to set up a few lights. It might just brighten your whole outlook on self-isolation.
