I'm curious about how many of our non-US JL members are in countries (or areas of that country) in which you have a switch between Standard Time and Daylight (aka Summer) Time.

(I think most areas of Canada have North-South time zones that match those in the USA, n'est pas?)

In Canada, while most areas switch between a Daylight Time and a Standard Time, aren't those date/times different than the ones recently adopted during G.W. Bush's administration?)

Many (most?) countries near the Equator do NOT switch since there is little change in their length of days between summers and winters.

And for our friends South of the equator in OZ and New Zealand, since your seasons are the reverse of ours and you've just entered your Fall, do you (or will you soon) switch to a Standard Time from a Daylight or Summer Time?

Yes like Rosie said we "spring forward" and "fall back" an hour.

On 29th March we'll jump forward one hour into British Summer time, then on 25th October we'll go back an hour onto GMT.

I'm so looking forward to the lighter nights for walking the dogs, it's such a rush this time of year by the time we get in from work it's already dusk.

Here in Finland we move to summer time, or daylight savings time, which ever you want to call it on the last Sunday of March. I think it's the standard in all the European Union member states.

We do (we're in Ont). We set our clocks forward this weekend.
Yeah. I hate this time change. :mad: For some reason, it really affects my sleep pattern - I know it's only an hour difference but it takes me a couple of days to get back on track.

On daylight savings time here (Australia), we will be switching back to normal time soon.
Not here in QLD. Recently some people have been lobbying for a referendum hoping to reintroduce it but the government wont budge.

Personally, I don't care about it one way or the other.
