Daylight Saving(s) Time

Hello! In a few days I hope to write a longer post about the Third Conditional, but for now I wanted to share an interesting video and an article I found related to time:

As you may know, in the US and other English-speaking countries, the people change the clocks by an hour two times every year. It's called Daylight Saving/Savings Time, and it's often an interesting or confusing cultural aspect. This year they'll change the clocks again on November 6th. The video above explains the logic behind Daylight Savings Time, but the narrator also speaks pretty quickly. If you're having trouble understanding everything, don't worry: I also didn't understand parts of it!

It's pretty interesting and I know that it's even controversial sometimes. I personally think Daylight Savings Time is great because it means that it's light until 8:30 or 9:00 PM in the evening in Colorado.

So, thanks for reading, and check back in a few days for more information about conditional tenses. Have a great day!
