Night/Morning Person and Daylight Saving Time

The thread about Daylight Saving Time got me to thinking. Some love it, some hate it. I got to wondering if it made a difference if you are a night person or a morning person. I am a night owl and I love DST. How about you?

If it were a perfect world... I'd get up and 9:00am and go to bed at 11:pm every day...

I'm at my best between noon and 8. : )

I like the time change because that means my running usually done in the evenings still has a bit of daylight left!

I love having more daylight, I hate changing times. It seems like once you get your routine down it's time to change the clocks and start all over. I think we should keep DST all year long. We need more light in the winter anyway.

Can't hit the sack until it's been dark for several hours. The later it gets dark, the later I get to bed and the later I go to bed, the later I get up. Daylight savings time seems to make me miss an hour of morning (my favorite time of the day). Actually it's probably the longer daylight hours that prevent me from enjoying those quiet predawn morning hours.

I love to get up with the dawn. Discovered the joys of this in my 20's when I injured my knee playing netball and couldn't go nightclubbing any more. Instead of cringing under the bed covers trying to get more sleep after only having been in bed for a couple of hours, I was able to get up and enjoy the tranquility and nature with clear eyes. Never looked back.

I don't really see the point in keeping DST in modern times anymore. Days get short days get long it's all just a part of the changing seasons to me. Adjusting time by an hour one way or the other just doesn't seem useful anymore.

I am definetly a night person. I wouldn't say I *loved* DST, but I wouldn't say I *hated* it either. I just think it's silly.

I'm a night owl. I like to start cooking things in the evening and throughout the night. Once-in-a-blue-moon anybody calls late at night...after 11 p.m. The dogs rarely need to go outside during the night. There's barely any distractions. Before Christmas, I made my cookie doughs a about 3 at a time during the day for a few days. Then one evening, I started baking everything in the evening and throughout most of the night. I think I was done at 5 a.m.

I LOVE daylight savings time! I love the longer daylight hours. I craft with as much daylight as possible. I look forward to it and am sad when it ends. Daylight Savings means that it's Spring again.
