We observed an Earth hour.
Ours was at 6.30 rather than 8.30.
Having it at this time meant the kids could participate and for us it was no lights, no computer, no Wii or TV.
We ate dinner by candle light with the light of dusk still enabling us to see quite adequately.
We played a game by candlelight afterwards too
However Story time was a bit different as there was also the fire safety element to consider.
So out came the headlamp and the torch.
Did you observe Earth hour and if so were there Children involved?
I'd love to hear about it. :)
