Daylight Saving Time History in Norway

Daylight Saving Time has been introduced, discontinued, and re-introduced quite a few times during the 20th century. When the measure was reinstated in 1959, controversy erupted, so in 1965, DST was again abolished. However, it was re-introduced in 1980. Today, Norway follows the EU’s daylight saving schedule.
