It is the time of year when the days become shorter, we say goodbye to spring and summer and say hello to fall and winter. This time around, in November, we ‘fall back’ an hour which makes it darker earlier. In summer and spring, the sun sets around eight or nine and rises around six to seven in the morning. In winter and fall, the sun sets around six or seven and the sun rises at seven to eight. During these colder seasons, we have fewer hours of daylight than in summer or spring. Some students believe it’s easier to go to bed after daylight saving because with less light they find it easier to go to sleep. This also means that for the students who stay late for clubs or just getting assignments done may be leaving at times where the sun is setting or its already dark when it was originally nowhere close to the time the sun set. As the days become shorter the days will get colder and eventually the first snow will fall soon. The meaning of this is during winter the days are short well the weathers colder in the summer the days are long and the sun does not set tell later in the night. Daylight savings happens twice a year for summer and winter. The cold happens once the sun sets sooner leaving to bundling up for the next couple month of cold weather until the next daylight saving.
