It's Earth Hour tonight.
For those scratching their head, it's annual event that started 4 years ago in Sydney, where people around the world turn off their electicity for an hour as a stand against climate change. It's amazing how much of a reduction in usage and environmental impact than an hour can make when millions around the world join in.
We go for a walk and look at the stars (and find out which of our neighbours are also joining in Earth Hour by seeing how dark their house is!), then we come home, light some candles and actually spend some time together without tv, computers or ipods. We pretend we live hundreds of years ago, before modern technology started to decimate our world.
It's an hour that passes quickly, helps our world and that we all look forward to.
I ask that at 8.30 - 9.30pm (your local time) tonight, Saturday 27th March, you too join millions of people around the world for Earth Hour and turn off your lights and other non essential electrical devices.
