In some of the eastern states of Australia Daylight Saving Time comes to an end on Easter Sunday.
New South Wales HAS Daylight Saving, Queensland DOES NOT !
For nearly half of the year neighbouring states are on different time zones !
In Queensland our longest Summer day starts about 4:30am and finishes about 7:00pm.
By 7:30 it is pitch dark - no twilight, just dark.
The weather is warm/ hot but it's dark at 7:00pm.
An hour more daylight would be good.
Families on summer holidays could use the extra daylight hour.
In Queensland we have less hours of daylight so we could use the extra hour in the evenings that moving the clock forward would give us.
What I find hard to understand is why countries with long hours of daylight need Daylight Saving Time.
I've been in Scotland where dawn arrived at 3:30am and it was still light at 10:30pm!
I understand the desire to make use of every hour of light after a dark Winter, but who needs to be out in twilight at 10:30 -11:00pm when it's daylight again at 3:30am?
That's 19 hours of daylight !!! ( wouldn't 18 do? )
I guess mothers ( and others ) just draw the curtains and shut out the fresh Summer air to create "darkness" in order to get their kids to sleep at night.
Daylight Saving Time or Summer Time starts soon in many places all over the world.
How do you feel about Daylight Saving Time?
