High noon is not high noon during daylight savings. Let's stay with God's time.

I would prefer to have that sunlight in the evening instead of my drive to work.

Thanks, Ka San. Yes, I'm actually for permanent daylight savings. It passed in CA: https://lwvc.org/vote/elections/ballot-measures/proposition-7-conforms-california-daylight-savings-time-federal-law

The sun rises and sets in a cycle that has existed for eons. Daylight savings is a futile attempt to fit the eternal cycle of the cosmos into the present schedule of western humanity. Serious Fail!

It messes with all the feeding schedules and wake up times for the animals. I used to get :up at 7:30 now its 6:30. They also think they should be fed again at 3:00 when it used to be 4:00.

For years and years we got by with Daylight standard time. The old chief said why does the white man think by cutting a foot off of the blanket and sew it on the other end would make it longer?

There is really no point and it's so hard to adjust to the change. I really hate that it's dark out earlier.

It does not serve any purpose to use it. Please abolish it!

Quite the contrary. I'd vote to keep DST year-round. I love the longer daylight hours. It saves electricity. If they would make later school hours, kids wouldn't wait in the dark for the bus either.

I don't want to abolish DST--I would prefer keeping DST year round. I would rather have the light in the evening.

Don't actually celebrate Christmas. I celebrate Hanukkah, but I do like the real trees when I see them around.

We've had an artificial tree for years and it's paid for itself many times over. The last real tree we bought soon began to smell like rotting vegetation.

My plans will not change. What will change is trying to limit my exposure to the Media Hysteria over this new variant.

We will all probably get COVID sooner or later. 45,545 fully vaccinated people have tested positive for COVID to date in Oregon. Omicron is even more contagious than Delta. I plan to be careful but if I get COVID so what? I will die or I won't.
