While the world seems to be full of doom and gloom as of late, many people around the world are trying to find the brightside.

Some people around the world have opted to dust off their Christmas lights and hang them outside their home again.

The idea came from a US TV host who thought it would be a good way for families in self-isolation to get out and about in their neighbourhood.

"What if we all put our Christmas lights back up? Then we could get in the car and drive around and look at them. That seems like a fair social distancing activity." he wrote on Twitter.

The idea seems to be catching on - check out some examples of the idea below... Maybe we could get this started in New Zealand?
