This year Daylight Savings Time started earlier in the year than normal, which you now know. But it cost me an hour of sleep, which I don’t particularly care for at all. I know it’s traditional to have it on Sunday morning, but I have no problem with upsetting the status quo in this case.
Here’s my new suggestion for it, which will make everyone happier : have the time skip ahead an hour on Monday morning. When we get to work at 8:00, let the time jump to 9:00, with the lost hour being lost, as it is now. Then people will actually look forward to Daylight Savings Time, instead of dreading the lost hour of sleep as they do now.
I realize this would not be ideal for the fall, when we gain the hour back. So let’s leave it like it is, where we get an extra hour of sleep. Sleep is important, you know, and most people don’t get enough. So let’s quit losing sleep for this time-shifting event in the spring, while continuing to gain the extra hour of sleep in the fall.
Let’s put this to a vote in our country. I think most Americans would go for this. So let’s let the majority decide.
