EU Daylight Savings

By November 6, 2016Food For Thought

So apparently….. Europe has a daylights savings as well. This would make a lot of sense. As I woke up today in panic thinking I overslept my alarm, but I found I still had 45 minutes of sleep. Technically I would have overslept, if it wasn’t for my phones automatic time change. Secondly, my boyfriends watch was an hour forward. We were soooo confused, like was it like that this whole time? Was it fast? Was it somehow really slow?

No. It was the “fall back” of European daylights savings. Who would have thought that existed. Totally thought it was only one of those weird American things conceived to “sell more grills” or some other consumerism reason. But no. The last Sunday of October time goes back in Europe. A week before the USA daylights saving time.
