    What is your opinion on daylight savings, changing the clocks twice a year? Do you want to abolish or keep it? I know some states in the US already don't have it but here in CA, its still a thing.

    Not really sure how I feel, tbh. I like the pros and cons it brings each year. I like the long days during the summer how the sun stays out until 9pm each night. This coming weekend in CA, we are about to set our clocks black so we can gain an hour of sleep. If we were to abolish it, I want to stay in daylight savings so that we can have more light at night all year round.

    What is like in the state that you live where they have already abolished it?

    Only Arizona does not follow DST.....I would rather not monkey around with our sleep schedule and just leave it alone.

    Here are the countries/etc who do/do not follow DST...blue is northern hemisphere DST, red is southern hemisphere DST, the light and dark grey are those that do NOT follow DST

    i voted to keep.

    it's literally taken me 44 years to get used to us 'springing forward' in spring and 'falling back' in the fall.
    i'm an old dog.. i can't be taught new tricks :D

    The only goodness out of the whole DST thing is the extra hour of sleep we get, once a year, in the fall.....
