Who doesn’t love daylight savings?
Long evening walks, surfing until dinner time, twilight pre-bedtime swims. And it all starts this weekend as we turn our clocks FORWARD one hour to welcome that extra hour in the evening.
But the big question is WHY ON EARTH DIDN’T DAYLIGHT START ON THE LONG WEEKEND?
It’s tradition. All the good things. Footy grand finals, beach patrols, an extra sleep-in and daylight savings. But not in 2018.
Well apparently it’s up to the Governor General, and he says Daylight Savings starts on the first Sunday in October- wether it’s a long weekend or not. This keeps the time-change in line with other daylight-savers in the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.
Residents of QLD, the NT and Western Australia don’t have daylight savings (and therefore do not have faded curtains)!
It’s the first time since 2012 that we haven’t “sprung forward into Spring” over the long weekend
