Earth Hour is a movement which is observed by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The event’s main objective is to encourage people to turn off all the non-essential lights at their home (or in their surroundings), for one hour, on one designated day announced by the WWF.

If you are observing the Earth Hour for the first time, or are already accustomed to observe the day, here are some fun activities that you can do on Earth Hour 2020. Are you ready to dive in the pool of fun this Earth Hour? Earth Hour 2020 Date: Significance of the Observance That Encourages to Switch Off Lights in Support of Nature.

To make things funnier, put your hands to good work. You can draw a masterpiece by painting on someone’s face, be it an animal, a quote, or anything. It will be fun when the lights are turned on. Pro tip: Don’t post these masterpieces on your Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram. LOL!
