I don't think you do 😕

It's your choice 😉

The window blinds are kept open during take-off and landing to give better visibility, both from the inside out and vice versa - this way in the case of emergency both the crew and an eventual emergency team outside the plane can see what’s happening and make more informed decisions.

Another regulation similar to "it is normal procedure to turn off cabin lights for takeoff and landing at night", "don't inflate your life jacket in the aircraft" and "no earphones on take off or landing" 🍅
