Daylight saving time
27/03/2019

Daylight saving time already has a history of over two centuries and is associated with controversial opinions on its usefulness. Its introduction was originally motivated by better use of daylight hours. Expectations of energy savings, however, have not been practically met. Consequences on the circadian rhythms of people and animals, logistics, information flows, etc. are instead being considered. The idea of implementing daylight saving time is not uniformly accepted, both in European and global terms. Moreover, there is hardly anything wrong with countries that have abandoned the introduction of daylight saving time, but have saved themselves the unnecessary and pointless disruption that other people are subjected to twice a year by inertia. Therefore, even if a unified European solution cannot be reached, Bulgaria can abandon daylight saving time on its own.
