Santa is going to have great visibility this year on Christmas because America will be more lit up than ever before.

With 2020 being such a horrible year for so many, we are all in need of some serious Christmas spirit this year. And it seems that most people are getting more into Christmas than ever this year.

Sales of Christmas lights are up nearly 20 percent nationwide in 2020.

There are lots of reasons this could be the case. Many people started decorating for Christmas extra early this year; some even BEFORE Thanksgiving.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are all spending a lot more time at home this year, giving us plenty of time to decorate our homes. (Not to mention, this is one of the few safe, fun things you can do.)

Many people have gone all out on decorations to help boost moral after such a horrible year. Christmas decorations are a small thing, but can bring even the slightest bit of joy to your neighbors, and people driving by.

I know my roommate and I are planning on driving around this weekend, all over Charlotte to check out all the displays.

So while the Coronavirus has caused an unfathomable amount of negative events and things this year, you can thank it for this one thing… Christmas will be a little brighter  (literally) this year due to COVID.
