Let's take this another step further this year. Unplug from the internet and switch off the TV. Spend one candle-lit hour reconnecting with your loved ones. If the weather is fair wherever you are, go outdoors and look up at the stars, or listen to the crickets and other night sounds.
Not only does our planet need a break from the incessant demands made of it, but so do we.
Are you planning to participate this year? If so, please share how you're going to spend that magical hour.
Me? I'm going to have a glass of wine and an early night's sleep.
