Is coronavirus bringing back Christmas early?

Coronavirus is sparking the desire for some holiday cheer – in March.

While news rages on about the virus, Hallmark Channel and social media users are finding ways to lift spirits with a Christmas movie marathon and early Christmas lights, respectively. 

Hallmark is rolling out reruns of its Christmas movies to spread some holiday cheer while people are stuck inside due to self-isolation and social-distancing.

The marathon kicks off  Friday at  noon with 2015’s “A Christmas Detour” starring Candace Cameron Bure.

The lineup of feel-good flicks continues through Sunday, ending with “Christmas in Rome” starring Lacey Chabert (6 p.m. EDT/PDT),

Other movies included in the marathon include “A Christmas Love Story” with Kristin Chenoweth; “Christmas Under Wraps” with Cameron Bure; “A Royal Christmas” with Chabert; and “Christmas at Dollywood” with Dolly Parton.

Hallmark isn’t the only one looking toward the holidays for a pick-me-up.

People also took to social media with the idea of putting up Christmas lights in order to spread some hope and kindness during this challenging time.

“A friend just shared that an elderly neighbor came to her house and asked her husband to turn on the Christmas lights because there’s so much darkness and scariness now. So, there are bright dancing Christmas lights now on in their neighborhood,” user @LisaStRegis tweeted.

“Today a few of my neighbours decided we needed a bit more light in this dark time and decided to turn their Christmas lights back on. I hope it brings a smile to (your) face like it did mine,” user @NadineGB204 shared.
