The Shine a Light movement is all about using Christmas Lights to show support in dark times.
Just when we thought the festive season had become a distant memory, people have started re-purposing their Christmas lights as a sign of hope amid Coronavirus fears.
A community is gathering momentum, with the purpose of showing support to those on the front line, facing adversity at every turn. We all need to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, which is why the idea has taken the internet by storm.
Displaying lights, whether in your window or garden, is also an opportunity to show friendship and solidarity with our neighbours, reminding the more lonely that there is someone there for them, even if they cannot be seen. We all need hope right now, so let’s shine a light in the dark to join the community.
We'd love to see your photos with your Christmas Lights back up, whether that's in your windows, trees or the reindeer are making another appearance! Share your images with the hashtag #shinealight on social media - let’s spread the love.
