Time to do our own thing

March 8, 2012

Dear Sir,

On March 11, we go onto “Summer Time” in the middle of winter. Supposedly it is to conserve electricity which is a load of rubbish. For the past couple of weeks early morning (6am) is now lighter and taking children to school and early morning walks are done in the relative safety of early daylight. Now, with the onset of “Daylight Saving Time”, we will be plunged back into darkness and consume more electricity, ... and for what? Where’s the benefit in March? Just because America does it (not all states) we have to do it? Daylight Saving time was designed for the more northern climes which have less daylight anyway not for regions in the subtropic zones. Why don’t we show a bit of individual spirit and do our own Bermuda thing? Have Daylight Saving as part of our Bermuda Day celebration and “jump forward” the weekend before May 24.
