I’m going to make this rant short and sweet.
I understand that days get shorter or longer depending on our distance from the sun and yadda yadda yadda, but I see no practical reason why we don’t “spring ahead” and just stay that way. Most people in the United States no longer need to wake up early to plow the fields, so why do we “fall backward”?
We utilize the later hours of the day a lot more now. Granted, our natural circadian rhythms aren’t naturally that way, but I know that I’d at least feel better if it didn’t get dark at 6 o’clock in the evening.
I’m not a morning person. I never have been and I doubt that I ever will be. So, I am pretty stoked that I will be awake to see more daylight.
I think I need to move to Alaska for part of the year.
