Do not forget to change your clock forward one hour!

Don't forget to advance your clock one hour.

Don't forget to advance your clock one hour.

This weekend some might complain because we have one hour less to sleep… but lets’ see the good side: summer will arrive one hour sooner!

The time change was first introduced during the First World War, but it did not begin to generalize until 1974, when the first oil crisis forced some countries to move their clocks to make better use of sunlight and thus, consume less electricity for lighting. At present, the time change applied follows the 1996 regulation, agreed at EU-wide: clock forward one hour the last Sunday of March, and back the last Sunday of October.

For this reason, this weekend, on the night of Saturday 30th to Sunday 31st, when the clock strikes 2 am, must be advanced to 3 o’clock.
