Assuming you agree that we should have the same time year-round rather than moving up an hour each spring and back an hour each fall, do you favour going to permanent Daylight Saving Time or permanent Standard Time? Why do you feel that way?
I have thought, for a long time now, there is no sense in keeping daylight saving time. When the clocks go back in October, it makes the day feel longer than it is. In December it gets dark about four o’clock. This is when children are leaving school, and it is not safe to keep it like that.
Yes, it will be darker in the morning, but I would prefer that to in the afternoon. When the clocks go back, it makes the next day strange. You can’t get a sense of the time, and your internal body clock needs time to get used to the change. When the clocks go forward, you lose an hour.
An hour’s less sleeping in my bed feels wrong somehow. I end up waking up an hour late, without having the rest. This year it falls on Mother’s day, so I will be sleeping more regardless.
