    It ends today. Do you think it's beneficial to have this time change every year?

    I don't see a major point to it at the time it occurs. But, I've been thinking about it, and it's been worth it, the way I look at it. During the summer we got more time to do stuff in light, but do you agree with this idea, or have any idea? Post them up. ^_^

    I don't care for it because it forces me to adjust to a new time frame and by the time I adjust, it changes again.

    If it takes you half a year to adjust to one hour difference, I'd recommend seeing a doctor.

    I love the night time, and it's when I am awake the most, so I personally don't care for it.

    It's something I have never understood. But I have heard that they are supposed to be rid of it entirely sooner or later.

    I'm indifferent to it, although it is a nuisance getting up an hour early every spring :P

    Actually, there IS point to it. It was started by people farming, and they wanted to be able to harvest earlier in the day. The only way they could do that, was set the clock ahead 1 hour, so the sun was out earlier.

    Ended for me about a week ago too.

    And I don't really care about it, doesn't bother me or whatever.
