Earth Hour 2009

Our family participated in Earth Hour again this year. Many feel this exercise is meaningless because turning off the lights for one hour is not saving any significant energy. However, we had a fun time with it last year and our family was happy to participate in it again this year, because it creates happy memories for us, it shows that we support the green movement and hopefully, over time, we will be part of a larger movement that will change our overall habits leading to less wasting of our Earth's limited resources.

As usual, we turned off the lights and played our favourite board game, "Settlers of Catan" by candlelight. For this year, we thought it would be fun to roast some mini marshmallows too. It was like being at a campfire and we all enjoyed the well toasted marshmallows.
