I had just about gotten used to it getting darker, earlier and earlier in the day.
And now, with Daylight Saving Time, and the days getting shorter, and nights longer, the sun will rise even later, and the sun will set earlier and earlier.
So...What's the big deal?
It was all very simple when I lived just 1 degree above the equator - the length of day varied only VERY slightly from 12 hours all year round, i.e. on any given day, the number of hours of daylight would equal the number of hours of night time, just about.
i.e. No Daylight Saving Time, almost no difference in the time the sun rises or sets all year round, no remembering to "spring forward" or "fall back".

Letti : Oh, we have to remember to change the clocks tonight
David : Yeah, the clocks gotta fall back
Letti : Which means? ( I still can't remember if we lose an hour or gain an hour )David :Arent the words"falling back" pretty obvious?
*10 second pause*
Letti : So does falling back mean an hour earlier or an hour later?
David : *rolls eyes*
Letti : Hey, I come from a country that has just ONE time zone and NO worrying about springings and fallings of any shape, size or form.
David : .......
Letti : Grrr.
