PARMA, Ohio (WJW)– Parma City Council passed a resolution on Wednesday encouraging its residents to keep their holiday lights glowing.
The effort, which goes until the end of February, is to show support for health care workers and first responders.
“At a time when people are encouraged to stay distant from others, Christmas lights and decorations can create a sense of community among neighbors and friends, as well as help bolster people’s moods,” Ward 9 Councilman Roy Jech said in a news release.
“Parma residents have always risen to the occasion with exceptional decorations and Christmas displays, so why not continue to display them.”
