Which do you prefer, "Spring forward" or "Fall backwards"?


Personally, I love "Spring forward" as I get to drive my commute home after work during the daylight! Plus, after I get home, I can walk my dog during the daylight! Eventually, I will get to spend several hours outdoors in my garden until 8:00 p.m. of daylight after arriving home from work. So, which do you prefer ... to Spring forward or to Fall backwards? Thank you for answering.

    Hi Sha, thank you for answering. Yes, 9:00 is actually 8:00 to your body. It is a bit of an adjustment. For me, since going to bed at the new time is actually an hour earlier, I do not miss out on any sleep, but that is just me. Blessings

    Hi Dear Sparklea, wow, I did not know all of that, but I still get up early and Springing forward does not seem to bother me, as I go to bed an hour earlier. I love NOT driving all the way home an hour in the dark! Then to be able to be outside too!

    Hi Dee aka Nonna, I do love Spring and all that it entails for sure. As I truly do not like driving in the dark all the way home during the week! It does get harder as we age no doubt about it! I am glad this was a fun question for you!

    Yes, it is hard to choose, but I like the extra daylight, I guess because I miss most of it inside an office all day! Hugs

    Yes, I am all for that extra hour of sleep, but I hate driving home in the dark!!! Although, we have the same amount of time, it seems like I just do not have enough time in the Fall. But I do love the holidays coming.

    Yes, that is why I love Spring forward due to the long days of daylight and doing extra activities outdoors. Yes, it is 4:30 p.m. when it is dark here in the winter too at first, and I need sunlight!

    Hello Jesusvu, oh, yes, those first few mornings are an adjustment, but I just love the sun still shining when I leave work and get to do things outdoors after arriving home. Yes, many people get that winter depression from not having enough sunlight

    Hello MysticMoonlight, I love your hubber name, and I predicted your answer when I read your name : ) ... That hour in the morning is nice, but I just love those extra hours of sunlight during the evenings to be out and about. Thank you for answering
