Now that daylight saving time has begun, when do the clocks in the UK go back?
People can benefit from an extra hour of sleep and wake up feeling rested thanks to Daylight Savings Time.
It also paved the way for a number of memes to be shared online, which undoubtedly increases our daily intake of humor.
What Time Does the Clock Go Back?
At two in the morning, the clock will advance. As a result, residents of the UK and other countries in Europe will be able to sleep an extra hour.
However, since this would require them to work an additional hour, it could not be good news for those who work night shifts.
As the Summer Time Act was passed in 1916, the custom of changing the clocks has been in the UK since the First World War.
There Have Been Talks About Removing the System
According to Metro, on March 27, 2019, the European Parliament opted to abolish the daylight saving time system and urged each nation to choose between permanently being in winter or permanently remaining in summer.
This would require the nations that chose to remain in the permanent winter system to turn their clocks back one hour, while the nations that chose to remain in the permanent summer system would need to turn their clocks forward one hour.
However, because the nations couldn’t agree, preparations to make this happen were put on hold in October 2021.
