New Delhi:

Earth Hour will be observed in 172 countries across the globe today when several cities around the world will be plunged into darkness to support a cause started by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007. The movement inspires people to do their bit and take an action on climate change. 60 iconic towers including the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, Big Ben and the Sydney Opera House participate in the Earth Hour.

Here are the 5 things you can do in the dark after you turn off the lights and observe Earth Hour:

Candlelight dinner

Couples can have a romantic candle light dinner while observing the Earth Hour. Get everything ready, including your food, candles and other things on the table, before you turn off the lights to avoid stumbling round the kitchen in the dark. 

Tell ghost stories

Older kids or even adults can get together and enjoy telling ghost stories to each other. Create a spooky atmosphere, invite your friends and enjoy the darkness.

Invite your friends

You can invite your friends for some fun activity while observing the Earth Hour. That activity can be anything like singing songs or chit chatting.

Move out

It usually happens that when there is a power cut, people move out and take a stroll. Why not do it while observing the Earth Hour. Enjoy a walk, or simply sit at the park and gaze the magnificent stars.

Have an early night

It’s weekend, so why not sleep early one day. It will come as a relief after a hectic week.
