    Why is this even a political matter? People should do business or go to sleep whenever it makes sense for them to do so. The free will of the people will tell us the best time system to make.

    Interesting note about Arizona is The Navajo Nation Community observes Daylight-Saving Time, where the time is shifted forward by 1 hour, resulting in a 6 hours difference behind GMT. The Hopi Nation, within the Navajo Reservation, does not operate time changes . After the Summer months the time is shifted back by 1 hour resulting in the normal 7 hours difference behind GMT. Sorry I'm a nerd..

    Everyone changing our clocks and endangering our health is easier than changing work and school schedules for groups that actually want those things? There's a fourth hand on many clocks, often red, which solves this problem, without making it anyone else's problem.

    Being in the furthest states in the northern mainland, I can understand why they would want to have DST turned on and off. If DST never is set for the north, the sun will rise in places like Bangor Maine at 3:50am on the first day of summer. I mean really, would you really want the sun to wake you up with it's bright light that early in the morning for the month of June? Same thing for the winter but different results. Would you want to send your kids to school when the sun will rise around 8:10am meaning that it is still the dead of night when they go to school? For seeing these two scenarios I say don't mess with time messing with time.

    I am from Finland and here the turning of the clocks is actually good. At the moment we are living in Kaamos-period, when the sun doesn't shine. In south of Finland we get sun from 9-15 about, so if you work indoors you don't see the sun at all. In the summer on the other hand we have midnight sun. Makes us Finns a bit bipolar.. Besides, my phone and computer do the change so I really don't worry about it. I have never heard it causing accidents or deaths, that statement doesn't make any sense. World isn't USA centric, the time isn't formed around how Arizona counts it. Time is a man made count of Earths rotation and seasons and such. Get on board with the rest of us, get metric and stop thinking you're the center of all. Yes, Mr Ego, I meant you.... ;-)

    Definitely, some really lack the power of true history, omit the real important and leave only a partial true to manipulate ideas like the one here presented.. No! It was not in 1916 when this idea was proposed. But, it was in 1784 when Ben Franklin suggested that the people of Paris (who slept til noon) should arise earlier to take advantage of the “free” daylight. This would save money in candles. Ignorance is not a bliss!! And, it seems many ignorants try to teach us a manipulated part to purport specific agendas that go against common sense....🤣🤣🤣😅😅😅🤣🤣😂😂😂😁😁😁😁🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Stress is a big part, but also sleep deprivation/jet lag equivalent. There are more suicides and car accidents in general on Mondays, (every year besides 2020) when people are going back to work and school. It takes some people months to adjust to a new sleep schedule...then a couple/few months later it changes again. Mess up sleep schedules for people and they're tired, distracted, irritable. The immune system is hampered by this, as well. All these sick, sleepy angry people have heart attacks, road rage, more sick days, and make bad decisions. Your body cannot run without your brain doing its job properly. Do this to hundreds of millions of people and statistics of accidents, crime and medical problems are going to reflect this. People _will_ die disproportionately after every time change. But hey, at least we're buying more candy and going to the mall. Yay... Check out the Mythbusters episode where Kari and Tori compared being impaired by alcohol and being impaired by lack of sleep. They drove and performed other tasks that people normally do and need to be able to concentrate upon. The results were almost the same, between the two effects.

    Fun fact: The European parliament voted to end time changing two years ago, but some countries want to have the "summer" time, not the standard one. There were heated debates which one should we choose and it was the biggest topic that time. Also the argument 'why' is different here - changing started because electricity savings in industry sector. I wonder what happened to the topic, I guess coronavirus happened.

    I hate winter time. You go to work in darkness, and return home in darkness. No daylight at all. If we had the normal summer time, at least in the afternoons people could catch a glimpse of daylight. Who cares if daylight starts at 09:00 or 10:00 ? I care that I have at last half an hour sunlight after 17:00

    That far North, yeah, it should. That's nature on a planet with a tilted axis. It's just a really big ping-pong game we play with Australia, Africa, and South America. We get the shiny ball for six months, then bounce it back to them for six, repeat. The Tropics watch it go slightly left and right, while ignoring our silly Winters. It's always Summer in Ecuador and Kenya. :)

    It depends where a person live geographic on earth. Think it is better to keep DST year round than standard on some regions, while other aren't. The only drawback is it isn't aligned with natural earth spinning time.

    All of you are welcome to change your alarms, petition schools and employers for different hours, or go to ones that already have different hours, while the country matches with the rest of the world's time zones. We don't need to adjust everybody's clock _at all_ for a minority who could just wake up earlier.

    I always get slightly annoyed when they do the whole "what is time" bit and they don't cut to a scientist explaining it. ("They" being TV writers in general) We have time almost completely figured out. It's not a social construct, It's a physical thing with an energy value that can be measured. What is a social construct is what particular bit of time we "decide to call 10 pm." Like if you measure a distance in yards or meters it's still the same length but the number will be different.
