CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — As the coronavirus spreads, holiday lights are going back up to provide a bit of emotional and actual brightness.
Wrapped around a tree trunk in Colorado, fashioned into a heart in Alabama and hung high over Main Street in a New Hampshire town, they're especially easy to enjoy from a safe social distance.
Downtown Farmington, New Hampshire, was re-illuminated Thursday night by 27 strands of lights that swoop between wooden posts overhead.
In Huntsville, Alabama, Sarah Bang made a heart shape instead of her usual string of white lights. The movement has gained steam on social media with the hashtag #lightsforlife.
