Earth Hour Day
This is the day to observe Earth Hour. As a symbolic reminder of climate change turn off your lights at 8:00 PM for an hour tonight.
This new environmental event, in the spirit of Earth Day, began last year in Sydney, Australia.
If you believe polls and the news, 70 % of Canadians are going to participate this year. Humm! Pretty optimistic.
This leaves us with the question, "What will I do for an hour in the dark?" I suggest you take the opportunity to be outside and experience your neighbourhood in the dark, without light pollution. If you live somewhere where you don't have to lie on the cold snow, as I do, lie down and look at the heavens. Those of us who live in the country know the delights of the sky but those in an urban environment, could benefit from a reminder.
Another good way to spend an hour without the electricity: plan a candlelight dinner with a special friend (s). We all look so much better by candlelight:) Take your time you have an hour to eat.
If you decide to do something unusual and fun let me know.
