Like every year, today, SUNDAY October 28, 2012, (or the last Sunday of October), we greet the summer time with the return of the winter time. It means first of all that the day today will last 25 hours. So tonight the time from 2.00am to 3.00 pm, will be repeated twice. To me, this time of the year brings sadness, I prefer many times more than the summer time. First of all, the reason for the fact that with the solar time, comes dark before. However, we must resign ourselves to the fact that in a year there are four seasons, and we have to go through all of them. The only consolation that the winter time only lasts five months against seven of the summer. Just this DST, it will revert to the last Sunday of the month of March 2013.

Well, how you were able to read my discussion, I think you and me are in tune with the seasonal preferences.

For us winter hasn't officially started...we're still in fall. I love all the seasons....I make use of what each has to offer...in the winter I love staying home and working on my crafting projects....as opposed to spending my time outside in the nicer weather...I love fall for the colors...love spring for the fresh breath of air it brings to us.

Well, I just talked about the winter time, that in my country enters into force today and runs until the last Sunday of the month of March 2013. In fact we are not yet in winter. It officially starts on December 21. Maybe I think my discussion I have not known how to explain very clearly.

Unless you live in a place that does not have four seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, then this is still only Autumn and not winter. Yes it is true that it is getting cooler and time change is here, but it really isn't winter yet. Sometimes it really feels like winter though. But it really seems like so many people are neglecting this season as it really is. We all seem to recognize Spring because it comes so nicely to warm things up after the cold snow of Winter. But as soon as Summer ends and the weather starts to turn cooler, all talk is about Winter. But thanks for the reminder about the time change. Enjoy the Autumn. Winter will be here soon enough. I had forgotten it, although all my clocks change automatically other than the one on the microwave.

Well, anyway I've missed in my discussion of writing a particular very important. Here in Italy, there is just the time change that takes place twice a year. But I know for sure that this is not the case in all states of the world. So I do not know if those who read my discussion, they are in my same situation.

Last week the clocks changed time. It was hard to get used to the new time. It feels like winter now with rain and cold temperatures. In my home country winter months are December, January and February. Spring months are March, April and May. Summer months are June, July and August. Autumn months are September, October and November. Last night I went to a bonfire and firework display. It was cold weather and the ground was wet. It gets dark early in the evening now and I prefer the long summer evenings. I like hot weather and sunny days. I am not keen on winter weather.

I don't like the winter time, because it makes me feel sad a lot of the time. One of the things that I struggle with is the fact that it is so cold and dark most of the time. I do struggle with the dark, and I'm just not happy in the slightest when I am made to be in the dark. I am so looking forward to it being summer time again, as it means that it can be lighter in the evenings. I know that it doesn't last for all that long, but that honestly doesn't make things any better for me at the time that it is happening because it still makes me feel a little bit down.
