    Time change - from Daylight Saving Time to Winter Time

    Time change - from Daylight Saving Time to Winter Time

    Soon there will be a time change again.

    In the USA, in Germany, and in a lot of other countries, I think.

    What do you think of this constant putting the clock forward ... and backward .... and forward .... and so on?

    I don't like it.

    Do you?

    Or - who does?

    I don't like it. The older I get, the longer it takes me to adjust. Plus I'm very particular about the clocks in the house having the correct time, so it takes a while to set them all.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I am not sure to be honest. I rather dislike it, than like it. On one hand there is one more hour to sleep in the winter, and otherwise in the summer. But it's a big headache to find out when the clock time needs to be changed.... ><

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Re: Time change - from Daylight Saving Time to Winter Time

    I hate daylight savings a lot. It doesn't even make sense. I think we should just stick with the daylight savings (spring and summer) time throughout the year, because having the clocks roll back costs us a ton of energy. The logic is that it is lighter on energy to have the clocks roll back in the fall, but that means that we lose an hour of daylight in the evening. We're running on old logic there...few are up that early in the fall and winter that it makes THAT big of a difference, but almost EVERYONE is up at 4 pm when it gets dark out in the dead of winter. Wouldn't it be better to have an extra hour of daylight (when we don't have to turn on the lights) when pretty much everyone is awake?

    Plus, apparently having it get dark soooo early in winter causes higher traffic accident rates, which makes sense.

    I know it's easier to get up when it's daylight out (believe me, I know...) but it would be for the greater good. It's not just my line of thinking either. There's lots on this.

    Apparently it also causes us to use more heat, because it gets colder earlier.

    On the flip side, the spring/summer time causes people to use more air conditioning in countries where people use air conditioning (so, not Europe...none of us can afford AC).

    Also, just a note, but Europe and North America have it at different times. Just in case anyone needs to be time aware across continents (I do).

    Same here. It seems that just as I'm getting used to the time, it's time to change again.
