Turn Off the Lights!

Tuesday, December 19, 2006 Posted: 05:50 PM JST

Turn off the lights and take it slow, for two hours from 8 to 10 p.m. on the night of December 22, 2006 (your local time). Candle Night encourages people to turn off the lights and spend some quality time in the candlelight.

The organizers leave it up to you to give meaning to this wonderful event:

"Do something special. Read a book with your child by candlelight. Enjoy a quiet dinner with a special person...

This night can mean many things for many people. A time to save energy, to think about peace, to think about people in distant lands who share your planet...

By turning off lights for only two hours, we will be all loosely connected. Let's make a 'wave of darkness' spread over the globe together.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
