This weekend there is a new time change, the last of the year
At dawn from Saturday October 24 to Sunday 25, there will be a new time change in Spain, the second and final of the year. In this way, starting at three in the morning, we must set our clocks back one hour. And so, at 03:00 it will be 02:00 again.
The winter time is part of the usual dynamics by which we adjust the clocks to adapt the schedules to greater energy savings and use of daylight hours until March.
The time changes occur twice a year, once in March and once now, in October. Community directive 2000/84 / EC is responsible for this variation in Europe and the reason why the hours of our mobile devices are automatically advanced or delayed.
The most immediate effect of winter time in our lives will be noticed in the daylight hours, and that is that from this Sunday, it will dawn and dusk earlier.
In 2018, when the European Union considered eliminating the seasonal change in 2019, an initiative that was finally postponed to 2021. The community proposal was supported by a European survey carried out on 4.6 million citizens, 84% of which were They spoke in favor of abolishing this semi-annual change.
The European Parliament approved to demand the end of the time change in 2021, however, this decision needs the approval of the States and for now the situation remains unchanged. Thus, Spain maintains, for now, its current time zone and the time changes in force for more than four decades.
