Daylight saving time

Countries near the equator don't use daylight saving time.

North of the equator daylight saving time starts around Mach and ends around October (in 2006 Sunday October 29th).

South of the equator daylight saving time starts round October (in 2006 Sunday October 29th) and end around March.

 

Winter time is always GMT time.

Summertime can be with daylight savings. In that case 1 hour will be added to GMT during the Summer.

For instance: CET = GMT + 1 hour during the Winter. During daylight savings CET= GMT + 2 hours.

When comparing two places you should know about daylight savings in BOTH places.

 

The idea behind daylight saving time

During Summers there is plenty of daylight in the early morning, when most people sleep.

During the Summer it's better to strech the daylight during the evenings, when most people are awake.
