Just to be clear if daylight savings are scrapped it will get dark one hour earlier in the evening as winter time will be the official time all year round.

That also means it will be light one hour earlier in the morning though

Yeah, that's a problem too. You hang out with your friends at night and bam! Daylight at 5 AM.

Sounds like a good reminder that you should be getting some sleep asap

Hope this pushes the US to get rid of it as well. Also wish AM/PM would be killed off. Time should only be kept on the full 24 Hour scale. DST and AM/PM are massive over complications of something that should be straight forward.

I bet you want metric time too you dirty commie

It is not scrapped yet but what this means => Worst case => We have a bunch of countries who use summertime , a bunch who use Winter time and others who still use the bi annual time changes.

Best Case scenario: 5 o'clock in London will also be 5 o'clock trough the rest of Europe/(EU)

They are not abolishing Time Zones, that will remain the same. 

UK and Portugal use GMT (currently GMT +1 on summer)

Central Europe and Spain use GMT +1 (currently GMT +2 on summer)

Eastern Europe uses GMT +2 (currently GMT +3 on summer)

 

The difference being that the time will remain the same throughout the whole year, there won't be adjustments in March and October. Which is a very nice decision if you ask me!

Yeah that would be pretty good. I used to do my vacation around Easter. I went from Germany to Portugal, then Spain, then Morocco and back again. Always crossing a time zone and additionally adjusting the clock to summer time in between.



Wouldn't make more sense to keep summer time and get rid of winter time? This way it will be more daylight in the evening and less in the morning. Makes sleeping more comfortable.

Disappointing, I thought the news was about the EU voting a law to ban the use of daylight saving time.

I was happy that finally my country would have gotten rid of that crap...



Instead this news is about the fact that nothing has changed ^^

oh, this thing confuses me lol 

If you hate it when it gets dark too early you should be against scrapping DST since it will be dark an hour earlier in summer. 

Clearly guys, can anybody tell me a real reason why he’d want that?! (Except for “I don’t like change”)

When does it get dark in your country in summer? It’s around 10pm here in Germany.

True but since 90% of people are awake in the evening and 90% of people are asleep at 4 AM, I'd say most people will tend to enjoy evening light rather than very early morning light.

On a different topic: This is my 500th post on VGC, yay!

Good, hopefully this will encourage other countries to do the same.

Haha, there actually is a thing called metric time.

The second is the basic unit of time, it is divided into milliseconds, and nanoseconds is a smaller unit, etc...
