Every year when Daylight Saving comes around, the same old talking points come up – which countries do it, what times of year, how will this affect my morning routine – and there are as many different opinions as there are people willing to discuss the topic.
Here at WeatherWatch.co.nz, we love to get our readers’ take on issues like this – and we’ve been getting plenty of feedback both for and against Daylight Saving in its current form.
Some people have suggested pushing the date as far forward as November(!)…
“still a bit early for daylight saving better first sunday of november” – Jason Dunick, Facebook
…while the spring weather is still as unpredictable as it is currently, while others want to scrap the idea altogether.
Let us know how you feel about its current form in the poll below, and give us an explanation in the comments section or on our Facebook page – and we’ll publish the results next Saturday.

… I’m still on standard time and intend remaining so – just been getting up a bit earlier to greet an earlier rising sun, which is currently currently around 7am (my time !) – no problem -and it actually means I have a longer day, going to bed around 10pm (standard time)

I think Daylight Saving should really be in winter when you really need that extra daylight at the end of the day, but then dairy farmers would complain and others about the dark mornings.!

November!! No way, that would see the sun rising at 5am at my place before the change. Ya dream’n mate. There is no ‘easy’ answer, as the weather and sun rise/set times is/are so different from one end and side of the country to the next. I think any time around each equinox is fine.
