Christmas Lights Spread Cheer During COVID-19 Crisis


Virginia man hopes his holiday decorations will inspire goodwill during the coronavirus outreak.

(WCYB)   Inspired by the coronavirus crisis, one Virginia man is bringing Christmas time to the month of March. 

Michael Harless says the festive lights and decorations he’s put on display symbolize happiness and cheer.

“I was thinking about a time back in the 80’s during Christmas when everything was closed, and you couldn’t get anywhere. But we were still happy. I thought if I could see my lights right now, I would feel better, I would feel happy,” Harless says.

“That not knowing makes us a little bit more afraid,” Harless says. 

To curb that fear, his mission is to put a smile on people’s faces.
