Earth Hour around the world

At 8:30 PM on Saturday 26th March 2011, lights will switch off around the globe for Earth Hour and people will commit to actions that go beyond the hour. What did you do during Earth Hour? Did you turn off the lights and other appliances? Did you use candles or other light source devices?

I just turned off the lights. No use lighting candles. Candles themselves emit carbon dioxide (CO2) and I didn’t want to add to the carbon emissions. So if it was just about reducing emissions, you would be far better off leaving on CFL bulbs (and switching as many of your old bulbs to CFL as possible) than lighting candles at home or in bars and restaurants

Photos around the world in Twitter show some using candles are their power sources. What did you use?
