Daylight Saving Time

So after a number of years of not changing time, Tunisia is back to applying daylight saving time starting this year.

Clocks will be advanced by one hour on midnight this coming Sunday, May 1st.

This comes as a move by the government to try and promote saving of energy in the wake of the ever-rising cost of fuel in the world market.

Doesn’t bother me at all.
In fact it adds an extra hour of daylight to the summer days, so one more hour of summer fun 😉

  1. I love daylight saving time, it just gives more time after work during the summer where you can hang outside. Summer sunset should be mandatory around 10-10:30 pm minimum 🙂

  2. In Tunisia, we work only up to 3PM in July and August because of the heat, and now daylight saving time is back, so we’ll have some really nice long afternoons to enjoy after work 🙂

  3. Thanks for the info 🙂
    In my humble opinion, I think that there will be no energy saving, but we will be in phase with Central Europeen Time (CET)

  4. yep, 3PM Fefe 😛 Some people even get off at 2PM 😉

    Whispers, I too don’t think there will be any big saving of energy, anyway, it’s always good to have a longer afternoon after work 🙂

  5. I just absolutely love the daylight saving system… because you feel your day is longer and the evenings are just beautiful and I generally feel more active!!

    Ever year when we switch back to the old system in October I start going through withdrawal symptoms…
