So for three weeks we're two hours earlier, right?

Not necessarily. Depends on where in the US you are talking about.

EDT....yes.

I asked a Mexican friend before Mexico even started to observe DST why they did not. His reply was telling. He said, "If you go to work before the sun comes up and do not return until after it has set, what difference does it make?"

big deal I have 7 or 8 hours differnce with my home country , does not make any difference I do not live there, meanwhile here we are going to have to pay attention again to the time as the indigenous towns do not change and the mestizos do so you always have to specify official time or God´s time or you are sure to mess up..

Canada changes the same time as the US . They decided it would cause too much disruption to business and the stock markets if they did not.

Thanks all, and yes, it was Eastern time I had in mind. Very ethnocentric of me.

What about the poor Russians with 11 time zones, trying to keep up with American happenings.
