    Because, in areas where daylight savings is used, people are still clinging to an antiquated practice that had a good purpose at the time it was implemented, but through changing times -- and trends away from agriculture and religion-determined work times -- is really more of a nuisance than anything else now.

    Actually, the clocks go back one hour and forward one hour every year.  I am not trying to be a smart @ss, just a point of clarification.

    Have a great day.

    In the UK they changed them to stop the mornings from being so dark. A few years ago they kept them in line with the rest of Europe and had a number of accidents. They have since reverted back to the one hour time change.

    What Wychic and colonial82 said.  It is obsolete (if it ever really had any validity), but it is kept as it gives our rulers one more way to screw with us.
