#Connect2Earth for Earth Hour 2018

Happy Earth Hour, when people all over the planet shut their lights off for an hour after dark.  Witness skylines go dark in solidarity with global efforts to protect Earth!

Every year, landmarks around the world go dark to support their support for our planet, our home. This year, 24 March 2018, 8:30pm local time, you can join us too!
It isn't just turning off the lights.  Earth Hour is a celebration of fighting climate change.  Watch Official Earth Hour 2018 Video: #Connect2Earth to see.

This #EarthHour, join us on a journey to spark never-before conversations and show us how you, your friends and family #Connect2Earth!
All of that is fun, but UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' message for Earth Hour 2018 states the seriousness of the event.

"Earth Hour is an opportunity to show our resolve to change." Join WWF's Earth Hour on Saturday, 24 March at 8:30 p.m. local time Together, let's #Connect2Earth and start a conversation to protect our planet.
As I noted in Ten years of Earth Hour for 2017, "I've been celebrating the event since 2011, making this my seventh Earth Hour.  It also makes this the very first special day of any kind that I observed on the blog, second only to April Fools Day."  Today makes it the eighth celebration of Earth Hour in this blog's history.  I plan on observing it as long as both the event and I exist.
