The children were excited to celebrate Earth Hour. My eldest daughter decided to just go to sleep before Earth Hour even began.
Before the hour was up, we were slowly putting off things that are using electricity: pc, television, lights in the kitchen, charging electronic devices and others.
Before the hour was up, all the lights were turned off, except that one at the side of the house. Fans were turned on though for it was a hot and humid night and we don’t want to risk an asthma attack. We stayed in the living room and spent the Earth Hour there. The two younger children were on a mat on the floor playing with my mobile phone while I was on the sofa. There was only one burning candle, the one on the dining room, which stayed burning after we had our candle light dinner.
We had fun playing shadows on the wall, lighted by a candle. We listened to the songs being played on the mobile phone. We had fun making faces using the flashlight. Not only had Earth Hour aimed to accomplish something for global warming, it also fostered family bonding to families who observed the special time.
