Daylight saving time starts in Europe in 14 hours from now (UTC+1) at 2 o clock in the night between Saturday and Sunday. Do you have this measure in your country? Do you like it or are you bothered by it?
In which night do you change from winter to summertime?
I'm against the idea of daylight saving. It just doesn't make sense to me mathematically. Why do we have to adjust clocks instead of adjusting working hours?
Anyway, in my country (Iran), we adjust clocks one hour forward in vernal equinox (astronomical spring - when the earth enters the Aries constellation: Farvardin) and set them one hour back in autumnal equinox (astronomical autumn - when the earth enters the Libra constellation: Mehr).
Daylight saving time can be confusing and reflect political and cultural realities.
Exactly a year ago, I had an Arabic lesson with a teacher from East Jerusalem. We both weren’t sure at what time we would meet. We also weren’t sure if italki had figured out the right time**
So this year, I avoided booking a lesson on this crucial weekend
** in Israel including West Jerusalem summertime started on Friday March 23 at two o clock in the morning. In the Palestinian Territories including East Jerusalem and Gaza it will start in a few hours in the night from Saturday to Sunday.
