British Summer time ends tonight! In just under an hour British Summer time end as we put the clock back one hour. Until about 10 minutes ago I had forgotten all putting the clocks back although all my clocks do it themselves. My Laptop and cell phone. When do you put the clock back in your country, maybe you already have? I personally can’t understand why we have to put the clock forward and then back each year, doesn’t make much sense to me.

In India we let the clocks remain as they are. Nights are getting longer day by day and days are getting shorter. We just adjust our life to this change.

@Marty1 Ok the day's will be darker or lighter at some point, but you only have so much light during the winter months anyway.

@kevin1877uk In my country we do it, i believe NEXT Sunday, so it is not so dark for Trick or Treaters, and i never understood it either why we have to turn our clocks back and forth. Don't forget to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. I did mine early because it was making beeps as it was running out of batteries, so my friend checked them all! I am getting depressed with all this darkness!

I've got my first ever smartfone and my first mobile for nearly a decade. I've just set my alarm for the normal time and hope for the best...worst case scenario I get to work an hour early...or that's what I hope as my place is VERY fast to fire people for lateness

@mike197602 I hope you get up in time and aren't late for the work, I hope if you are an hour early for work that you get paid extra money for working overtime!

I agree it's just silly to go on with doing it each year.

I don't like changing the clocks twice a year either. I'd rather be like Hawaii and Arizona, the only two states that never observe the time changes.

We do not have daylight savings time here in the Philippines but the businesses that have British and American clients follow this procedure every time the clock moves forward or moves back. I know, this was tried in the Philippines at least once back in the day but the practice never got any traction and it was scrapped altogether.

We don't change our clocks here since we only have two weather. But If i were there, I would be clueless about changing the clocks to favor the change in season.

I wish it was the same here and we didn't change the clocks.

I know some farmers that think it makes no sense either. It is so the farmers have an extra hour to work.

I'm sure many people don't understand it why they go back and forth.
