Lights Out: 'Earth Hour' celebrated around the world

Update: Here's how we spent our Lights Out time ... candles and a game of Phase 10 (sorry, Fred).

Original Post:

Reader BP sent over this note about an international event tonight to raise awareness around global warming. It's pretty simple ... just turn off your lights tonight from 8-9 p.m. Here's the note:
Tomorrow millions of people around the world are joining together to make a statement about climate change by turning their lights off for an hour. It's called Earth Hour and I just signed-up to participate, maybe you will be interested in doing it also. Earth Hour is on March 29 from 8 - 9 p.m. local time, and it looks like it's going to be really big. So far 25 cities around the world are taking part, including Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix and San Francisco in the U.S. Downtown Chicago is turning off the lights, what an amazing sight thought should be!

Sign up for Earth Hour by visiting and join the movement with me.

And remember - Lights Out on March 29!

How will you spend your hour without electricity?
