I live in Queensland Australia, and about 15 years ago, we decided by referendum here not to have Daylight Savings. Here are some of the brilliant ideas that were put forward to stop Daylight Saving:
'It would be uncomfortable having dinner at 8 pm and it still being daylight'
This is so true for Aussies! My ex-girlfriend thought so as well. When she was in Europe she had to pull down the blinds because she didn’t feel comfortable eating dinner when it wasn’t dark. I didn’t complain about that or the fact that the water swirls the other way when going down the sink.
