Daylight Saving Time = Sommartid

When I started the cash register at work on Monday. The time had changed. It was one hour behind my watch. I knew that people in Sweden were falling back with one hour 30th October 2011. So I was afraid that I missed something but my boss was at work at the same time as me. I have not heard anything on news or so.

Later I asked my friend. He did not know. I googled it and tonight is the night we are going to gain one hour. The Daylight Saving Time (DST) will stop. When it is 3:00 AM on the 6th November 2011. Then it is 2:00 AM again. So do not forget to move back one hour before you go to bed!

I have not heard anything about it in media like when I used to in Sweden, to remind everybody about the time change. But I do not have any TV-channels, I do not read Metro or 24hours everyday and I just started to listen to the radio. But I saw a notice about it on a door to a shop 🙂

I found a good website to look up all the Daylight Saving Time around the world, When the summer is coming again, we will loose one hour. That would happen 11th March 2012.

If you want to know the current time, coordinates and UTC/GMT offset on one page take a look here:

Strange that we have different dates when the Daylight Saving is ending.
