These curtains first came into existence during World War II. They were used by the British to hide any indoor lights that could be visible to the Nazi’s flying above their heads. A visible light meant a bomb was sure to descend and seal their fate.
In the modern era; however, we are thankfully liberated from using these curtains for such dire purposes. They are more of a protection from the light coming outside than the other way around. Let’s count the few but valued blessings that these can provide for a restless soul.

It’s a surefire way to make them sleep longer.
