Default Keeping my hedgie in the dark at night

This is very embarrasing but I am terrified of the dark! My hedgehog is in my room, and I am scared leaving the light on over night will disturb his sleeping pattern orbjust affect him negatively? Would it be safe to put a scarf over the window side of the viv ensuring that the air holes aren't covered or am I just being silly and paranoid?

Yup, it'd be fine to cover the front of the viv as long as he still has ventilation. It may not help if you have a very bright light on, but if you just have a nightlight or something dim on, it should be fine.
