There’s a wonderful idea brewing for this winter from ‘Shine Bright Scotland.” To lights up our windows this winter as a sign of solidarity and better things to come.
Children in Scotland have missed out on so much in 2020 already; a lost summer, school trips, holidays, cuddling their friends, exams, lacklustre birthdays and of course a long time away from doing all the fun things they previously enjoyed. With Halloween looking to be affected, little chance of fireworks displays, cancelled pantos and Christmas parties, it’s time to put a little sparkle to the darkness ✨
The clocks go back tonight. It’s going to be dark late afternoon, rather than evening. So let’s all add some light.
Inspired by Scandinavian countries, the idea is to put up lights of all sorts (fairy lights, lanterns, lamps, anything you have to hand) on November 1st right through the winter time. Not necessarily festive, it’s more about simply having light of some sort. Perhaps an ornament that lights up? Something bright that can be seen from outdoors by others.
Put them in your windows & doorsteps or outdoor spaces to brighten up the early darkness. Children can look out for the lights, and for lots of us it will be a sign of hope and of brighter days to come.
Let’s come together and #ShineBrightScotland ⭐️✨
