it was a leading official in Britain at the time who at the outbreak of war said,

"Tonight the laps around Europe are going out and I fear the light will not return in our lifetime"

The idea being that the lamps signify the idea of hope for peace being extinguished. The light's being turned of was meant to be a remembrance of the feeling of hopelessness across Europe, theres a candle that has been lit in Westminster abbey that will be kept lit for the four years or so of the duration of the war, this signifies the small light of hope of peace there was in Britain and Europe despite the hopelessness that was everywhere.

But wasn't it World War Two when the UK blackouts were in effect, because of, you know, the Blitz?

I don't remember hearing about German bombers and rockets taking out chunks of London during World War One.

"World War I was just Europe being such a flustercuck of grudges and alliances that when Serbia turned the little crank of Austria-Hungary, it set off the whole Mouse Trap machine of alliances and by the time the little plastic man jumped into the pool, everyone was fighting everyone else."

For all of those who say "Blackouts were in WWII" or "What's the point in that?", the idea was that in the darkness of a World War the light of hope was still on throughout.

The gesture also matches the words of British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey, who said on the night of the 4th, just hours before Britain declared war, that "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time".

I forgot about it. Like everybody else conveniently forgets all the other days of the year.
