When told the reason for Daylight Saving time, an old Indian said,

“Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.”

2 a.m. tomorrow—we will fall back! and I can sleep one more hour! Excited? Not really. I will be more excited if it comes on a Monday or Wednesday morning, when I have to struggle getting up at 6:45 to have the class. : )


Daylight saving was observed in China during a short period of time, and it was abolished 1992, the second year since my birth. The aim of daylight saving was to save the energy, but the chaos brought by the adjustment of time setting seemed to have offset the advantages. But I heard that some guys are lobbying again to resume the daylight saving.

Another interesting story about the daylight saving time — do you know the reason of changing daylight saving time in 2007? It’s because of the candy industry!  It says candy makers want to get trick-or-treat covered by Daylight Saving, so children will have one more hour to collect candies. and during the 1985 hearings on Daylight Saving, those candy makers put candy pumpkins on the seat of every senator, hoping to win a little favor. lol.

And last, a video about how daylight saving time can kill you….
