I have a love-hate relationship with daylight saving time.
I hate it when I lose an hour of sleep, and LOVE it when I get to sleep an hour extra.
Rest, who cares about the clock time change?
I just do the mental maths for 6 months till the clocks start giving correct time.
BTW I follow the old trick of staying on time: I keep my bathroom and bedroom clocks 10 min fast.
Cant do that with cell phone times, so I don’t see cell phone times unless outside.
Car clock: My son does change it despite my disapproval. So it gets changed.
Microwave or gas stove times: How does one change that? I don’t even use them for time check.
The only info I learned from this flyer below is ‘how to change the sundial’ as I have one on my terrace.
So that”s definitely a valuable information.
Now that I am living in Karachi, I did definitely miss the weekend of Canada where the clock got an hour faster. Just for the heck of it. Here in Karachi, Pakistan or in India, we never heard of clocks being changed due to daylight saving time. But we still lived, worked, and slept.
So what difference does it make in the countries where it is done? Did the original indigenous people of North America also had daylight saving time? If they didn’t, as most likely, then how are we now doing any better by making it happen now?
I beg my ignorance and I think I need to read up. There has to be some solid philosophy or scientific argument behind it, even if we don’t get it.
It feels a lot better to know that I am not the only blissfully ignorant person who doesn’t get it. The Native American people also find it funny as below: 😀
Here’s daylight saving time in a nutshell:
Because it adds an unnecessary challenge for parents with little kids to put them to bed an hour early.
For those keen to learn and understand more about this idea, here’s some valuable information 😀
