Change your clocks when you go to bed.

Don’t be late for Sunday Mass.

  1. Canada too. Blecch!. We now sync with you too as of a few years ago.

  2. Nicholas says:

    A phone alarm is useful for these situations, as it changes automatically.

  3. Chon says:

    Thanks. I nearly forgot, which means I would have missed something very important…a Protestant neighbor’s funeral is tomorrow…(yes, I know, liturgically very weird).

    Except for Arizona. God Bless Arizona.

  5. Andrew says:

    I keep my clock. I just adjust the time.

  6. Chris Garton-Zavesky says:

    This whole clock thing? Seems like it’s not worth losing sleep over!

  7. It is way too early to be moving clocks ahead. This silliness comes from the sort of mindless folks who think that if a little of something is good, a lot of it is better– the sort who think that the Gospel needs to be dramatized every week like the reading of the Passion, for example. The first Sunday of April was about right, though not the fully traditional approach.

  8. The Masked Chicken says:

    The reason clocks are moved ahead so early, now (it used to be April), is pure greed: it is so that stores can stay open in the light later and make more money. Benjamin Franklin, who originally proposed DST, never heard of the body’s biological clock. The body is regulated to about 24 dark/light cycles and that is based on where the Earth is at noon in Greenwich, England, as a standard. There is nothing natural about DST. In fact, I will go so far as to say it violates the Natural Law and is, hence, mildly sinful.
