Earth Hour

Anyone doing an "EarthHour" party?
We are. I've invited some friends and neighbous to a Wine and Cheese party and have asked them to bring along a candle and holder, which they'll take home with them. We're doing it from 7:30-9:30 and will light the candles and douse the lights at 8 sharp!!!...It should be fun!.....
We'll do the platters up with different cheeses, crackers, grapes and maybe some Polish sausage/pepperoni.....and of course, white and red wines.

Earth Hour is when "the world"I think, is asked to turn off lights from 8pm-9pm on Sat. March 29th to save some energy.

I hadn't heard of this, Ella, but it's a wonderful idea. My city isn't signed up but I plan to see if the news stations will pick it up so that individuals can participate anyway. I love the idea of a candle-light party. I'm in! Thanks for posting this!
