My family and I do earth hour whenever we here the news. It means a lot to us. What we do is turn off all the electricity and only use candles for lighting. We usually stay in the living room because there aren't any candles anywhere else. We either play boardgames, talk or ignore each other and do our own thing. That might sound a bit to dramatic so let me just explain it better. We don't ignore each other. We just sort of sit there quietly and read or something. Alone. See, we haven't done it yet because Hong Kong isn't doing earth hour yet. I did it last year. But not many people did that, we were kind of on our own for that one. (I mean in our building) I am sure lots of you guys did it last year. And I hope much more people will do this in 2010.

Hi Astrid,

I am helping Miss Wyatt with the blogging challenge.

Your place sounds just like my place for Earth hour. We have tea by candlelight and then we sit and read or play boardgames as well.

Good luck with the blogging challenge:)

Hi Astrid.
Earth hour seems to be catching on around the world so hopefully Hong Kong will soon participate fully. It's great to hear about how your family recognise the importance of Earth Hour.

G'day Astrid,
So Earth Hour is now over. Did your family take part again? Having read the blogs from other students in your class, it seems many of them were at the sevens instead.
