Earth Hour is a movement each year to turn off all of your lights/electric useage at 8PM. The goal is to save some of Earth’s precious resources. You can learn more on their website, www.earthhour.org. This year for Earth Hour we played board games by candle light, it was pretty fun.
Last year we just enjoyed the candle light (so did Ellie, our cat) and the quiet. We turned off all the lights and electronics and listened to the world around us. It felt nice to unplug and be “alone” in the hustle and bustle of real life.
I can’t wait to plan other activities for next year. It always feels weird to turn the lights back on.
