(FOX NEWS) -- Across the country, Americans are literally shining a light amid the darkness of the coronavirus pandemic.
Fox News reports nearly three months after Christmas, people practicing social distancing at home are putting their lights back up to help lift everyone’s spirits as the country fights through the crisis.
"What if we all put our Christmas lights back up?" Lane Grindle, a play-by-play broadcaster for the Milwaukee Brewers, tweeted Sunday. "Then we could get in the car and drive around and look at them. That seems like a fair social distancing activity."

My youngest son was bored today and said, "can we put Christmas lights on our tree outside to cheer us up?" Great idea buddy. Lights are on tonight as a sign of hope and the sweet mind of my 10 year old. #Rhodeisland #hope #lovemysons #Christmas #Cumberland pic.twitter.com/qhVjeuLc02— Mike Griffin (@rhodyknowsbest) March 16, 2020
Others admitted they hadn’t yet taken theirs down.
The trend has even spread outside of the country.
By Wednesday, more than 7,700 people had tested positive for the virus in the U.S.
