Earth Hour is probably the best excuse you get to organise a picnic in your backyard. And a picnic sans electricity gave my Consol solar jars a chance to work their awesome magic. Putting them out in the sun the day before was pretty much the only trouble it took to make a little event out of Earth Hour.
No one asked you to make a big event out of it, all that mattered was that your switched off your lights.
Sadly though, it didn’t seem like much of the suburbians cared to join in. I can understand the street lights staying on, but even the Easter cross on the hill in my neighbourhood stayed on.
It didn’t stop us from enjoying our little picnic though.
Even the cat enjoyed the unexpected nocturnal company.
