Here's A Trick Question You Might Ask Someone

You have no doubt heard of the saying: “Thirty days has September, April, June, and November. All the rest have 31, except for February which has 28 or 29.” Here’s the “trick” question, though. Which month is actually the longest? It’s October! Why? Because of the extra hour added in for the daylight savings time adjustment, October actually has thirty-one days and one hour. I have already been corrected on this, so I'm editing. Evidently, daylight savings time begins and ends differently depending on where you live. In Europe, it ends in October, but not in the USA. See how many of your friends know the answer!

You weren't totally wrong... Daylight Savings Time used to end in October and started in April in the US until a few years ago. I wish it still did, because it's really jarring to have it suddenly dark in November. The old way, the light change was a bit more gradual.
