Clocks change this weekend here in the US, which means one less hour to read … does anybody else begrudge that hour like I do? Wish the Powers That Be would just pick a time-frame and stick to it instead of inflicting clock-driven jet lag on an innocent public twice a year?
(Yeah, so not a question so much about reading … except, of course, you do need to use your electric light to be able to read, so the hour it gets dark IS relevant!)
I didn’t even remember Daylight Savings was coming up until I read today’s question, lol.
Anywho… for me personally, Daylight Savings is more annoying than anything. The whole lose an hour, gain an hour thing is old and I don’t understand why we bother (not that I’ve expended the effort to learn why). Other than that, and the monotonous process of changing the clocks that don’t reset themselves, I could care less about it though. It doesn’t really throw me off too much or anything.
How about you guys? Does the changing of the clocks bother you? Are you one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to put up with it?
I’ve always been pretty ambivalent about DST until having a kiddo… It’s a little different when their sleeping pattern is affected! Here’s my full BTT response!
I can imagine it’s difficult losing that hour with some kids. To be honest, we’re lucky here because my younger brothers aren’t even phased by Daylight Savings!
Daylight Savings bothers me when we lose the hour. For some reason, I feel the effects of it for a few days.
I count myself as lucky that it doesn’t really bother me, lol. I don’t really lose any sleep since I’m a weird sleeper anyways so I just get over it fast. I do love getting that hour back in the fall though. =]
