i hate losing the hour of sleep, but i love that it's light out until 8.30-ish. it means spring is almost here, which is a very good thing.

Other than losing an hour of sleep in April, how can you possibly hate it?

It gives an extra hour of day at the END of the day. In other words, instead of coming home from work on a warm July day at 7 p.m. and realizing it's already dark out, it's still perfectly light. Gives you time to do things outside, whether that be mowing the lawn, walking the dog, going for ice cream, playing with kids, etc.

I think we should have Daylight Savings year round. I don't like it getting dark at 4:30 p.m in December!

it'll take me a month to get used to the change, and by then i'll be in poland coping with a 7 hour difference.

is there any justice in this world?

IS THERE?!

At least we don't have to put up with double daylight savings time. Newfoundland tried that once, and it was still light at 11:00 PM.

The key is to change your clock before you go to bed. Because if you don't, then you wake up and you'll have to change it and seems like you lost an hour of sleep. But if you do it before you go to sleep...i dunno...it doesn't seem as bad.

actually, contrary to popular belief many farmers, and others whose schedules revolve around sunrise, dislike daylight saving time. it takes animals weeks to adapt to the time change, which can be very frustrating for farmers trying to maintain a schedule.

by pushing our clocks ahead an hour, we are essentially "making" the sun set an hour later, thus "saving" an hour of daylight and energy at the end of the day.

you know, i have two university degrees - one in the sciences and one in education. i tried explaining the whole daylight saving time concept to my ex-boyfriend many, many times. it always turned into this weird existential debate about how we can't just 'arbitrarily' go backwards and forwards in time. i finally just gave up. it had turned into a big joke and it was so infuriating trying to convince him otherwise.

and gibson girl: DOUBLE daylight saving time?!?!
