On the one hand, it just seems SO SILLY to artificially make "noon" happen an hour after physical noon, all year round, because society just wants to stay up later. Like, we could just have employers start work at a different hour, rather than changing the actual time. But no, now we're going to lie to ourselves and pretty much remove all meaning behind the word "noon."
But, on the other hand, as much as I hate Daylight Savings Time, I hate switching even more. So, being on Daylight Savings all year round is a lesser of all evils. At least I don't have a whole span of time where my animals want to be let out at their "normal" time, which suddenly is not my normal time because someone decided to switch the clocks.
My watch still has standard time. I didn't switch it to daylight savings in the spring. I just kept adding the hour when people asked me the time. I'm honestly tempted to always have my watch on standard time, even if we legally never live acording to the sun ever again. At least my watch will still tell the true time.
I feel like such a cranky, weird old person about this. I'm only 34! But, changing the clocks just so people can stay up later to buy more stuff, seems so SILLY.
