"World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate their commitment to finding solutions."
We did this last year as a family and plan to join in again this year. We did our hour last year from 7-8PM local time, as the boys usually fall asleep before 8:30. We turned off the lights, lit some candles, and played a board game and then the boys took a bath, got dressed in their PJs, read stories, and blew out candles to go to sleep. The thought that millions around the planet were doing the same thing we were, and the amount of energy we saved together in only one single hour was something we talked about for days. The boys liked it so much we have had more nights by candlelight, and enjoy the peace and quiet it brings.
