Earth Hour 2008

Last night we participated in Earth Hour. It's a global event where cities throughout the world turn off their lights for an hour to help reduce the production of greenhouse gases. We turned off our own lights and lit a few candles. We then spent the time with the kids just talking and having the TV off for most of the hour. Of course, we couldn't really go all the way with it and we did turn on the TV eventually but still kept the lights off.

It was fun to just sit around the candles for a while and chat with the kids about school and other stuff. Reminds me of the times when brownouts would hit Dumaguete and the siblings and I would just do goofy stuff in the candlelight while waiting for the lights to come on.

Our own kids didn't seem to mind the candlelight either. Maybe we could even make this a regular thing...
