Reminder: Clocks spring forward one hour this coming Sunday 29th March when Daylight Saving Time (DST) returns.
There will be one more hour of daylight in the evenings, however, we will have to sacrifice a whole hour of beloved sleep - though given the current circumstances that may not be an issue for many.
In Cyprus clocks should be adjusted one hour forward at 3am on March 29th.
This will be the first of the two clock changes in 2020 - the next will be on Sunday, October 25th when the clocks will go back.
On March 26th, 2019, the European Parliament voted in favour of backing the EU Committee draft directive to stop the one-hour clock change in the European Union, the European Parliament Press Room reports. The draft law was approved with 410 in favour, 192 against, and 51 abstentions.
The draft directive proposes that the countries that decide to stay on permanent DST will make their final clock change on March 28th, 2021, and will not change their clocks back to standard time on October 31st, 2021.
In contrast, the countries that decide to remain on standard time all year will set their clocks forward one hour for DST on March 28th, 2021, but then will change their clocks for the final time on October 31st, 2021.
