Question: Should We Abolish Daylight Savings Time?

I honestly think it's dumb and serves no purpose. It's sure nice getting that extra hour of sleep but stinks when we lose it.

Should we abolish daylight savings time? 


  1. I agree with you. We canceled this here for one year or evem more (I don't remember) and we have it again.

  2. The further you are north or south of the Equator I think yes, but
    the tropics certainly has no Daylight Saving Time.
    Qld where I until February lived had no daylight saving as does the Northern Territory here and also Western Australia has due to being from the bottom of Australia to the north has no D.S.T.
    Would be a bit stupid for Perth in WA or Brisbane in Qld to have daylight saving as they are at the furthermost from the Equator and the northern part of the states to have none. Utter confusion would eventuate, it is bad enough now with 3 regions of Australia having no daylight saving.
    Didn't Florida have no daylight saving at one time????

  3. We didn't have it up until about 8 or so years ago, so it's still fairly new for us in Indiana. I hate it and wish we would go back to not having it at all.

  4. I think we should set the time and just leave it alone. This back and forth is just not necessary.

  5. I would prefer day light saving all year.

  6. Love daylight saving and fortunately I can still get up on the old time and go to bed with the old time if I want to, but I don't.
    We change back 1 hour 2nd April here in Tasmania, Australia.

  7. Yes. It's outlived its usefulness since we are no longer an agrarian society.

  8. ... ours do not start 'til the weekend of the 25th/26th March!

    All the best Jan

  9. I'm all for it because Hawaii doesn't change times, but my kids in Chicago and Maryland do and it's hard for me to remember when I shouldn't call them.
