"Due to a presidential decree in 2008, DST is to have fixed dates for the beginning and end of the period. The time change is to occur every third Sunday of the month of October until the third Sunday of February. If the ending date coincides with Carnival, DST is to be moved to the next Sunday of the month."
Phew! Good Riddance DST. For those of us who hate the subtracted hour from our eight-hour beauty program, the return to the usual time is a big boon.
Of course, there are those who will say that DST promotes all sorts of good things including economising energy. Well, we agree. However, nowhere is it written that we should like it just because people up in the corridors of power decide that there must be DST here in our neck of the planet.
At least now, as the snippet describes, there is a presidential decree saying when to start and when to finish the tampering with almighty Chronus. Great, we say. We can now brace for it psychologically and stock up on a surplus of good-will to live through the next time shift later this year.
Good news for some of our readers in the Northern Hemisphere who are experiencing teeth-shattering cold and snow, for when this happens our Summer is past its peak, and Autumn is just around the corner meaning Spring is about to show Herself clothed in multicolored garments north of the Rio Grande.
Pass me those cucumber slices, please.
