Fort St. John residents displaying hearts in windows in show of support and unity

A brief walk outside or drive to the grocery store reveals how rarely people are leaving their homes right now. It's less busy, and the town is more quiet, everywhere you go.

A brief walk outside or drive to the grocery store reveals how rarely people are leaving their homes right now. It's less busy, and the town is more quiet, everywhere you go.

In the midst of social distancing and self isolation, families and residents all around town have begun placing craft hearts in their windows in a show of community support and unity. 

This trend began in other communities around the world, as a way to remind people as they're walking around town or going for a drive, that though there may be less people on the street, people are still thinking of each other. People have also started going for "heart hunts", taking their families for kids around town to see how many hearts they can find.

The FSJ's Family Friendly Early Years Facebook Page received a post of the idea on March 18. Family Friendly Early Years shared it to their followers, and in two days the trend has caught on all arond town. 

Have you participated in the "heart hunt" trend? If so, send us a picture of your display in the comments section.
