Fall Back

For those of you in the United States, don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour tonight. If you’re interested in finding out more about Daylight Savings Time, this website has a good history of the practice.

I used to think that Daylight Savings Time was only an American practice, but when I lived in Belarus, my friend called me to tell me to set my clock back because of the time change. I thought he was pulling my leg, so I feigned agreement and disregarded what he said. I was early to church the next morning.

Daylight Savings Time is international, it does appear.

    Of course, the Europeans call it the much more pleasant sounding “Summer Time”. But, then seeing “Summer Time ends” on your calendar is sort of sad, as a friend of mine pointed out last week.

Sorry, comments for this entry are closed at this time.
