Europe to Set Back Clocks One Hour starting this weekend for Winter Time

DUBLIN – Across Europe, winter time is set back one hour on a weekend in October. “The phenomenon” of European time change, which occurs twice a year, was supposed to end in 2021. There is also a decision of the EU Parliament in this regard. However, the time change project was halted due to the COVID epidemic.

As a result, from 2 a.m. on Sunday, October 30, EU countries, including Ireland, Malta, and Italy, will set their clocks back one hour.

Previous polls have shown that the majority of EU citizens support ending time change. However, issues concerning its legality must now be resolved. And it must be adopted by all EU member states before it can become common law. Following that, each member state can choose whether to observe summer or winter time.

The Europeans were overwhelmingly in favour of the time change. However, it is unclear when this change will come to an end. It is expected that there will be a decision in this regard after COVID.

The scheme of changing the time was implemented to provide the most “day” possible according to the change of seasons. It gets dark very early in the winter. As a result, the time is pushed back an hour to allow for more to be done in the evenings. They proceed with naturally long evenings in the summer.

This has been the standard since May 21, 1916. However, on March 26, 2019, the European Parliament voted to permanently repeal the daylight saving scheme. The most recent time change was scheduled for spring 2021. However, due to the COVID pandemic and Brexit, this did not occur.
