Date night at home on Earth Hour 

When was the last time that you actually spent a quiet, romantic time together with your partner? The kind of serenity and calm that does not involve paying a hefty amount of money for a five-course meal. The kind that does not involve braving Cebu’s crazy traffic situation. 

This weekend, on the occasion of Earth Hour, a worldwide movement started by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature in 2007, we invite you to turn off your lights from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. and take out your candles for a meaningful dinner with your loved one. 

Setting up a table for two may be one of those clichéd dinner ideas but admit it, this is a classic that will never grow old. With the right kind of scented candles, great music and sumptuous food, your candlelit dinner date on Earth Hour might just land on top of the list of the Most Remarkable Dinner Dates ever! 

Here are three reasons why you should consider having  a candlelit dinner at home on Earth Hour.

A candlelit dinner is not just a beautiful set up; it exudes a feeling of exclusivity and privacy in the comforts of your own home. Fancy having dinner in your matching pajamas? Your call! Your home, your rules. 


Time is a luxury these days and in a fast-paced world that we are living in, it is often a challenge to find time to sit down and talk. Take this as an opportunity to savour your home-cooked meals and talk about anything as you soak in the mood brought about by the candle’s glow. Extend your Earth Hour celebration for as long as you want, just make sure you have enough candles to keep the romantic night burning.


If you are blessed with a porch or an outdoor space, then take out those tables and chairs, turn off those lights and enjoy a meal under the stars. Enjoy each other’s company because the night is yours. Do not forget to look up to see how the stars have aligned for this most remarkable date night. 

On Earth Hour, have a romantic night with your significant other while joining the rest of the world pay tribute to the planet by turning off your lights.
