Same here.

They say it's for the kids, because it's not safe to walk to school in the dark.

Then give them ****ing Mag lights or change the god damn school schedule!!!!!!

Useless ridiculous old traditions.

I really dislike when it gets dark at 5:30. And then at the Winter Solstice, dark at 4:30.

It's not that I forgot. I thought it happened on Sunday night, not Saturday. Plus I don't care much about the stupid tradition.

It is a stupid idea by an otherwise brilliant man (Ben Franklin). Observing that the rich and leisurely in France spent a lot of time sleeping during the day and burning candles at night while partying, he suggested that they change th clocks so that their parties were held more during daylight hours. Which would cut down on candle use/costs.

The upshot is that the ruling class just sleeps late and starts to party at sundown no matter what time the clock says it is while us commoners now have to travel to/from work in the dark.

Well if that's the case, why in hell is it still being observed/enforced? Given today's technology/lifestyle, what's the point?

^^^ Supposedly it saves energy because you don't have to have the lights on as long in the evenings.
