Earth Hour


My hubby and I joined Earth Hour 2009.

We had wine and played scrabble by candlelight. It was fun except for the part where I lost the game this time. sedih Unlucky draw of the tiles. Oh, well. Got to have a rematch soon!


Of course, observance of Earth Hour has sparked a controversy. The real question is its real effectiveness and impact.

I think it's a start. It's a reminder to turn off the lights when you're not using it; to properly dispose our garbage; rethinking our commute; recycling things; etc. The list goes on.

I think that coming together like this will inform peoples of the world that future generations won't enjoy what nature has to offer today, if we don't take care of it. Awareness is the beginning.

  6. I agree with you.

    I didn't get to observe Earth Hour this year (I was out), but it was a lot of fun last year. My friends and I told stories and giggled on the floor in our dark dorm room.

  7. What a fun evening - we love candlelight. Even spaghettios taste better by its glow.

    Blessings,

  8. My husband beats me at Scrabble every time, not because he can spell or has a good vocabulary (that's supposed to be me) but because he is good at strategy and I'm rubbish - I can only plan one move at a time. Very frustrating. We haven't tried candlelit Scrabble yet, though. Perhaps in the dark I could steal his best tiles ...
