Time is relative to the observer. Then you add velocity, gravity and distance.. Oh my.   :) ;)

It is that time again to "Spring Ahead" in the U.S.  Daylight Savings Time becomes official at 2AM March 14, 2021 and ends November 7, 2021. 

It won't be until March 28, 2021 that Europe does the same.

When you consider that the airplane, and telephone were invented a long time ago.
And...
The internet has become commonplace.

IMHO: A lot of confusion could be avoided if the entire planet stayed permanently on UTC (aka "Zulu Time").
Employers, schools, & etc could set and change their operating hours to suit local conditions, and preferences.

I agree with you 100%, Pete.  Also, as I've mentioned before, we could also adopt 1/2 time by permanently setting time back 1/2 hour in the Fall and leave it there.

via Twitter from M3 Sweatt, American Academy of Sleep Medicine: Eliminate daylight saving time:
Quote
DARIEN, IL – Public health and safety would benefit from eliminating daylight saving time, according to a position statement from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

The AASM supports a switch to permanent standard time, explaining in the statement that standard time more closely aligns with the daily rhythms of the body’s internal clock. The position statement also cites evidence of increased risks of motor vehicle accidents, cardiovascular events, and mood disturbances following the annual “spring forward” to daylight saving time.

“Permanent, year-round standard time is the best choice to most closely match our circadian sleep-wake cycle,” said lead author Dr. M. Adeel Rishi, a pulmonology, sleep medicine and critical care specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and vice chair of the AASM Public Safety Committee. “Daylight saving time results in more darkness in the morning and more light in the evening, disrupting the body’s natural rhythm.”

Winter Time from today in Europe.

It's good for the morning wake up (not completely in the dark, at least for a few weeks). For those they are moving outside in the afternoon, it is a problem with the early darkness.

In any case, covid got all the attention the last 2 years and the discussions about not changing the time stopped.

I'm still advocating for 1/2 time by permanently setting time back 1/2 hour in the Fall and leaving it there without an adjustment in Spring.
