Can anyone give me the reasoning behind Daylight Savings Time? Maybe it wouldn't irritate me so much if I could understand a logical reason for it.
And why oh why do they keep moving it up earlier in the year?
If the sun comes up at six and goes down at eight, that's 14 hours of daylight. If the sun comes up at seven and goes down at nine, that's 14 hours of daylight. How in the world does it make any difference? Maybe, (just maybe mind you) I'm dense or something, but I honestly don't get it. People have tried to explain, but their explanations don't make any sense either.
I tell you I dislike it intensely and admit to a really bad stinky attitude about it. When hubby told me that it starts this Sunday, I threw a regular little hissy and declared that I just wasn't going to do it! I could send my kids to school an hour late every day... that would show 'em... Whoever 'em are. And I could be an hour late to my meetings and Bible Study.
It's just unfair to dictate loss of sleep like that. And getting up in the dark is so much harder.
Ok, enough whining. At least publicly...
What do you think? Are you one of those who actually likes it? And please, someone, give me some intelligent rationale!!
