Daylight saving time should be eliminated. It's one of those things that we continue to do because we've always done it, but it's an asinine policy.
But as long as we're going to keep Daylight Saving Time intact, could we at least allow the time change to happen when it can be appreciated and enjoyed?
I was awake in a hotel room in Kansas City at 1:59 AM on Saturday night, so I watched the clock kick back to 1:00 AM, but most people were asleep and couldn't take advantage of the extra hour.
Why not turn the clock back at noon? Just imagine:
You've just finished Sunday brunch, and as the clock is about to strike noon, it kicks back to 11:00.
Time for second breakfast!
When I was younger, my best friend, Bengi, and I would always host a party on the evening of Daylight Saving because it meant an extra hour to party. To reinforce this idea, we set our clocks back at 6:00 PM so when people entered the house, they were already operating on tomorrow's time.
We understood the value of celebrating the extra hour instead of allowing it to tick by unnoticed.
But short of this workaround. Daylight Saving goes almost unnoticed unless you have babies or small children whose sleep schedules are now fouled up.
Let's stupidly, archaically shift our clocks back at a time that would at least give rise to a little joy. In a world where everyone is constantly whining about never having enough time (but doing little or nothing to eliminate that problem), an extra hour every year would be cause for celebration.
