On the night of Sunday, the clocks are reset

CATALONIA / SPAIN: Saturday night or Saturday morning (27.10.), Depending on the way of viewing and the party, the clocks will be changed again. At 3:00 o'clock it goes back to 2:00 o'clock and the consequence is, that one "wins" one hour of sleep and it is already a little lighter when getting up.

The disadvantage is that it gets dark early in the afternoon and then depressive moods arise - an hour more sun or at least brightness is simply nicer. Another drawback is that some people get some kind of "sun jetlag", that is, the time change affects sleep (as the author of these lines) and you have days - albeit minor - problems with the "new" time. But again it is good that the winter time lasts only five months and from the end of March then the beautiful life starts to feel more brightness.

Another one for those who just can not remember the rules of winter or summer time. Many years ago, ARENA explained this to Andi, the operator of the bar "El Rastro" in Empuriabrava: In the spring the landlord puts his tables, benches and chairs outside the shop and in autumn the whole procedure and the faded furniture come back to the camp.
