How to encourage lights-off at bed-time?

Use glow-in-the-dark stickers to make lights-off fun.
J always protests when it is time for lights-off at bed-time. To make it exciting for him to look forward to lights-off, we put up glow-in-the-dark stickers on the ceiling above his crib.

Actually it was my mum who bought the stickers from Singapore and brought it to Copenhagen for us, when J was born. I am so thankful to my mum for it, and I can't wait to tell it to her, "mum, I have implemented your idea." She would be very pleased that I have remembered to put them to use :-) Years from now, I hope that J would remember this, that the stickers were from his granny.
Glow-in-the-dark stickers are also sold in Denmark in BR Toy Shops.
The novelty of this solution would wear off, but it would still provide a cozy time during lights-off time at bed-time.
I won't suggest this for babies, as I think it would most likely be disruptive to their sleep.

These glow in the dark stickers are also available from Amazon:
