Summertime forever!

Thu Feb 08, 2018 1:13 pm

Now that the EU parliament is voting to abolish daylight saving time, I want to advocate for keeping it on summertime forever. I live in the north of Europe and hate it when in winter it gets dark so early in the day. What do you prefer?

I wish they'd move it 2 hours and keep it that way. Who cares if its dark at 8-9AM? I'd much rather have light in the evenings.

I do. Nothing more beautiful than going for a run 6am in the morning. And that's by far more beautiful with a sunrise...

It is better to simply redraw the timezone boundary, for example place OP's country in UTC+2 instead of UTC+1 and place countries like Spain in UTC instead of UTC+1, instead of dealing with different winter or summer time

Instead of timezone, wouldn't it be easier to simply shift the work/life schedule for those who prefer light at evenings by 2 hours? Like make everyone goes to work and open business at 0700 and then leave at 1500 instead of 0900 and 1700
