Candle Night Summer Solstice 2006

Author: Shaney Crawford, Issue: June 2006, Topic: Events, Environment

Can you imagine a night without watching TV, fiddling on your computer, playing video games? How about a night with no electric lighting at all? What would you do?

You have a chance to answer this question on June 21, the longest day of the year. Candle Night is a biannual event that has been held 5 times since 2003. This year, it will be on June 21 from 8pm to 10pm. Participants are encouraged to "Turn off the light. Take it slow." Spend an evening by candle light and take a break from the hectic pace of your everyday life. You don't have to turn off your power, just your lights. There are lots of ideas about how to enjoy this evening on the Candle Night website.
