Spring forward, fall backward!

You lost one hour of your life last night, did you feel it? (Don’t worry, you’ll get it back in the autumn…)

Make sure your clocks are set right – double-check here! 🙂

      In Sweden, as in many other countries (but not all), clocks are adjusted in the Spring and Fall to try and follow the sun when days get very long or very short. This is called “Daylight Saving Time” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time). Many people have difficulty remembering when to move clocks ahead or back, so in English there is a little trick sentence to help you remember: Spring forward, fall backward (a play on words where the seasons also could mean actions). So in the spring, we “lose” an hour when we skip the clock ahead one hour, and in autumn we “gain” the hour back when we set back the clock again. This usually happens in the middle of the night, so the night is one hour longer or shorter, depending on the time of year. Hope this helps! 🙂
