Why not a Vernal Holihour?

March 8, 2010

Springing forward on the wee hours of Sunday loses either an hour of wine and revelry the evening before, or an hour of Sunday morning. What a mistake. In spring, we should adjust the clocks at 4pm Friday, everyone at labor getting a one-hour shorter workday. This Vernal Holihour would be added to other customary breaks from the work calendar, like one-eighth the 4th of July in that long stretch between Mardis Gras and the actual 4th of July. What would it take to get Congress to make official this one-hour respite? I suspect, in the current political clime, the idea would get filibustered.

    Nice thought. I would prefer they do away with daylight savings altogether or just use e.g. Zulu worldwide. Then you would feel both the season and the longitude.

    Glad to see you blogging RT. Now about this “cuddy” – do you chew it or take shelter in it?

    Put stuff in it. What else would one do with a cuddy?
