Just recently Australia, not sure about the rest of the world, celebrated Earth Hour, when for one hour, lots of businesses and people turned off their lights. More can be found on the net. We as a family did just that; turned off the lights, turned off the puters, xbox's, tv's, etc., and we lit lots of candles and had to rely on each other for entertainment.
My girls love doing this. The call it their "Little House on the Prarie" time.
How fantastic!! Wow, the United States could REALLY make a difference if we, as a nation, turned off all electricity for an hour. And with the cost of crude oil being so high, you'd think someone would suggest it!
I think that is a WONDERFUL idea to turn off the electricity for the night, not only to save money, but also for the joy of spending time with the family! I don't have children yet, but I plan on using your idea when I do. Imagine how much families the world over could benefit by spending that time together, playing games and bonding.
PS- That's cute about "Little House on the Prairie" time. :)
