An hour with the lights out also means that it’s a great time to get outside and:
Gaze at the stars – Whether in the city or the country, take a walk outside and see how many constellations you can spot. Maybe you’ll even catch a shooting star!
Take a moonlit walk – Even though the supermoon has already passed, it’s still a great time to get outside in the night air and take the dog for a walk, or even just take yourself for a moonlit stroll.
Prefer a group activity? Gather some friends together and have an Earth Hour party – inside or outside. Create your own Earth Hour cocktails, have some fun with cheese or chocolate fondue (only tea light candles required), break out the board games or musical instruments, or even attempt charades by candlelight. The more creative you get, the better the party! And, you might even want to try it again next Saturday night – any excuse for a party, right?
Too many options for one hour? Consider extending it to two or three! Now that we’ve shared our ideas, we’d love to know, how did you spend Earth Hour? And will you’ll be making this a regular habit – perhaps even an hour a week?
