Click an option below to send your vote

  1. I change my bed time a few days before the change, so I can deal with the one hour less sleep.
  2. Nothing. I do not even usually notice the change.
  3. I am looking forward to it. I wake up early and go out to enjoy a Spring day.
  4. No such changes for me! My location does not follow DST.
  5. What, is it that time of the year again? I hate DST changes - they need to abolish it!
