Morocco ditches time change
« on: Saturday, 27 October, 2018 @ 20:27:05 »
Morocco has decided to stop changing its clocks twice a year in a move that could soon be replicated in Europe.

Winter may be coming, but Morocco has decided to stop marking the changing of the seasons by turning back its clocks.

As millions of people around the world prepare for an extra hour of sleep this weekend (or one more episode of your current Netflix series of choice), the north African nation has instead abandoned the concept of clock changes and chosen to stick to summer time all year round.

The Moroccan government said the decision to stay on GMT+1 would save an extra hour of natural light and reduce electricity consumption.
