Earth Hour

We did it on Saturday, and enjoyed it so much we did it again on Sunday. Here's what one companion had to say about our power-free hours:

"Instead of being distracted by videogames and movies and music and TV, we talked. And laughed. And it almost felt like a drag to turn the lights back on. There's something really simple about sitting around in candlelight."

Now my goal is to have Earth Hour every night. It may not be going as far as this girl, but one hour of candlelight every evening sounds quite cozy to me.
