Transition to daylight saving time

However, with house hours to do this procedure it is possible at any moment: the main thing not to forget and not to be late on Monday for work.

Daylight saving time is applied by many countries since 1916. In Soviet Union for the first time daylight saving time has been entered in 1981, and since then it becomes annually. Under the recommendation of the European economic commission of the United Nations, in the European countries daylight saving time is entered and cancelled in uniform dates (from last Sunday March till last Sunday October). All countries of Europe and the CIS through which take place the big passenger-and-freight streams, adhere to this recommendation.

Besides summer in the majority of the countries of Europe also the so-called standard time constantly operates - when hands are translated to an hour forward. Russia, and before the USSR, too lives on a standard time. Sometimes people are indignant: a pier, steal from us a rest-hour, and in the summer - and at all two hours in the winter. But, it appears, it at all so. In 1991 under the offer of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Ukraine the Ministerial council of the USSR has cancelled standard time action. As a result all have quickly felt that light evenings were considerably reduced, especially in the autumn - in the winter. There were complexities at the people which work depends on natural illumination (building, transport, etc.). Conditions for schoolboys, especially for those who is engaged in the second change have worsened. The people began to complain: better with the sun to rise, than half-day in the dark to live. And autumn of the same year the standard time has been restored.
