Just want to remind everyone* to set their clocks ahead one hour tonight before going to bed. Day Savings Time starts early this year. Easter is early, too. Let's hope spring is, as well.

I personally have noticed through the years that the 1 hr. loss/spring ahead feels more like 3-4 hrs. It takes my family a week to adjust to the time adjustment. Is my family unique or has anybody else noticed this? Also, has anyone else been impacted by the extension of the daylight savings time? My husband bought a pricy alarm clock that automatically does the time adjustments but that was before the rules changed so now we still have to do the adjustments as well as make sure it doesn't automatically adjust again in 2 weeks when the time used to adjust. Now this clock not only costs more but is an inconvenience....sure wish we could get our $$ back or trade it in! Evil or Very Mad

Personally, I would prefer to just stay on Standard Time all year round. The rule was obviously made by people who aren't up before 8:00, so any energy they are saving by not turning the lights on in the evening, those of us who have to get up before the sun are using up.

This time change kills me, and the few weeks before we change back, I just drag, desperate for that extra hour. Of course, I was born in Std Time (November), so Daylight Savings is "unnatural" to me Smile Another reason I want to move to Arizona - they don't change!!!!

It seems we all have the same problem, moving forward in time.
But isn't it very early this year? Confused
We don't have summertime yet, only in april. and in Europe they always start it the last saturday of march, at least, that's how it was.
Because here, it becomes dark quite early at about 19 o'clock, we like the extra hour of sunlight, it's getting light here very early in the morning!
And as I understand it, it's not the same in the whole of the USA Question
Happy Stitching ,Fenny.

Yeah, it's earlier this year. Some genius in the government thought that it would help everyone if we shortened standard time, so we pushed the time change last fall from the last weekend of October to mid-November, then moved this spring one up to the 2nd weekend in March. That's the new schedule. There are a few places in the country that don't change time, but I think Arizona is the only entire state that doesn't change - but I could be wrong about that. A small part of Indiana doesn't change, but most of it does. Part of the Florida panhandle is in one timezone, the rest in another. I just hate mucking around with the clocks....
