The purpose of Day Light Savings is to basically 'save light' throughout the day. It is just moving it forward during spring and moving time back on fall. It is all just to change the time so that the day would experience more time with the sunlight. The day seems to be longer. Jobs that require sunlight or usually tasks that are performed during the day can use the extra hour of light that we receive.Different countries use Day Light Savings at different times of year. It is just like changing the time zone for a while. Sometimes the year (in the US) experiences days which get dark at 9 o'clock while other days get dark at 5 o'clock. So by then we use DLS so we have more time of the day to do activities (since most activities are done throughout the day rather than at night)
Well. If the people changing their clocks near your area, then I don't know. Other countries change their time based on the patterns of the sun and location in which the country itself is located. There are many factors the depict the fact of why countries have dark afternoons, therefore creating the need for DLS in their area. So, any of these factors would result in creating DLS at different times of year. Also, the country's government is the one that decides what changes it would do to DSL for that specific country.
i used to work with someone that refused to change his clocks so was never on time for everything. when a few of us asked him why he just said cus its bloody stupid and its also not required by law.
that was summet like 15 years ago so maybe its now a requirement but it wasnt back then.
i agree with him but its just earier to follow suit.
In Britian we have British Summer Time it starts last sunday in March and sends last sunday in October. i think its how they decided it...i think european countries who change there clocks do it the same time as Britain. i don't think it really matters what date countries put it back because some countries don't do it at all.
I'm sorry I'm tryin to get used to the new way to ask a question. Well I wanted to know why they change them at differant times? Here in the US we changed our clocks 2 wks ago, and now I'm reading about people needing to change thr clocks, I wondered why they hadn't been changed yet?
Because the world can't agree on whether to count in the metric system or whether to drive on the left or the right. Basically because everyone can't agree on anything. Also lots of people dont change their clocks. So really it makes no difference.
That would be interesting enough. Most people are used to habits that may change if that would happen (waking up early, would now make you go to sleep at that time, somewhere in the world). I would adjust.
I know that but I changed my clock 2 wks ago, y wud others just now b changein thr clocks? I thought if u did it it wud b the same day as everyone else and if u don't do it u just don't do it
I didn't really understand your question, were you asking about time difference or just why we change time according to different regardless of their position compared to the GMT?
More to the point, why doesn't everybody just stop changing their clocks altogether and just stick to one time - Universal Standard Time (UST) ? .
They are going to start doing that in the UK so that we have longer days and will help us be more 'healthy'
Ok I understand, I just never knew it was done at differant times, thx so much
So you are talking about day light savings?
