How to celebrate "Earth Hour" on 26th March - some bright ideas

Soon it is again time for one of the global warming religion´s  most "holy" - and stupid - annual events, the "Earth Hour". But don´t despair, there are many pleasant ways to join the greenies on Saturday 26th March. Here are a couple of suggestions to inspire you:

Remember to buy enough old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs (In Europe it might be difficult) well ahead of the event.

At 8.30 PM sharp, turn on all the lights in your house. (If you want to improve the effect, bring your X-mas lights temporarily from the basement to give some additional light)

This is the day for all of us to go Green . Open your windows and turn on this video (as loud as possible in order to help your possibly "dark" neighbours to enjoy the music):

Park your car in front of your house with the all lights on. Do as shown in this educational video:

If you are a trucker, park your well lit truck in a place where as many people as possible can see it. Or, if you have to work on than evening, make sure that all possible lights are on and working!
Check out this educational video for truckers in order to find out whether you need to install better lights:

If you are professional enough to be able to put on your own light show, March 26 is the time to do it. Here is a nice video to inspire your creativity:

Good luck!
And remember that by keeping all lights on you are contributing to a well balanced grid. A sudden huge fall in demand during the "earth hour" may be be harmful.
Pass on this message to friends and colleagues who also might want to celebrate "Earth Hour" in a proper and stylish way.
