On Saturday, March 26 at 8:30pm, people from around the world will shut off their lights for Earth Hour. Each year, we participate in Earth Hour to show our support for the environment and to take a stand against climate change. It’s a small thing but collectively, we can all make a big difference.
One of our favourite activities to do during Earth Hour is go for a walk and see which restaurants and homeowners are participating. It’s amazing to see the many participating restaurants with candles in the window and their customers, happily eating in the dark. Last year, we ate a restaurant and it had a wonderfully romantic ambiance when the lights went out, cell phones turned off and you could actually just concentrate on dinner conversation and food. It’s really the way dining is supposed to be.
I’m hoping this year more people and businesses will participate in this very important hour. Saturday, March 26 at 8:30pm. Simply, shut off your lights and enjoy the quiet.
