Users on social media have been documenting the decidedly cheerful trend that appears to be taking over at least a few streets across America.

Bringing out the Yuletide decorations in March might seem a little bizarre but the #lightsforlife movement is gaining momentum online with lock-downers sharing snaps of their homes.

"I say we all put our Christmas lights back up so families can drive around in their cars and enjoy the beauty of the night time twinkling lights all over again," wrote one Twitter user.
"We need a little light in this time," he added.

According to them, the sight of the lights in locked-down neighbourhoods offer a message of hope and inspiration to people feeling overwhelmed by the pandemic.

The lighting of homes throughout the country is not only to help stave off the anxiety of the pandemic, but it is also a measure to fight boredom.

Here are some of the photos.
