For most of us here in the US, it's time to set the clocks back an hour on Sunday.
Don't forget, or you'll be an hour early on Monday.

Meowclocks.
Happy is the person who shares their life with a cat. (Or two or three or........) =^.^=

Have made friends here.
Most were cats.

http://www.theinfolist.com/php/SummaryGet.php?FindGo=Daylight%20Saving%20Time
The period of Daylight Saving Time before the longest day is shorter than the period after, in several countries including the United States and Europe. This unequal split is an energy saving measure. For example, in the U.S. the period of Daylight Saving Time is defined by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The period for Daylight Saving Time was extended by changing the start date from the first Sunday of April to the second Sunday of March, and the end date from the last Sunday in October to the first Sunday in November.

There is no study that can say Daylight Saving Time save energy.
Nor positive effects on health, economics or public safety.
Or are dark mornings better then dark afternoons?

A 2008 Swedish study found that heart attacks were significantly more common the first three weekdays after the spring transition, and significantly less common the first weekday after the autumn transition.

@moomin
Terna, a Italy energy company, each year estimates energy savings. The following table reports this data for a few years. Looking at the table you can see that from 2004 to 2017 there was a drop in the savings.

Wrong!!!

British Summertime is there for public safety and social reasons. It stops schoolchildren having to go to school in the dark, particularly in Scotland, and also gives longer lighter evenings for family recreation after work.

I couldn't give a monkeys what the rest of the world do, it suits us over here thank you.

In Mars Italy save almost nothing.
However you save a lot in October.
Doesn't make sense because the day lengths are the same in Mars and October.
