    I think they should have daylight saving time year round. I hate the short days

    Daylight savings time has nothing to do with the length of the days...:D

    Yes, no matter how you look at it there are 24 hours in each day....

    Maybe they meant daylight hours as in "day."

    If your up 24 hours a day then daylight hours in a day makes sense. Most people are up at 7am till 11pm....Hense the days "seem" longer

    It should be called daylight shifting time

    Daylight savings time has nothing to do with the number of daylight hours in a day :D

    Latitude and time of the year determine the daylight/nighttime hours....

    As said earlier, daylight shifting would probably be a more descriptive term.

    I am originally from Honolulu, Hawaii. I have not returned home since 1980 but we had daylight savings time 365 days a year i.e. there is no clockchanging back and forth from standard to dst. :p :D

    My brothers live in Kona Hawaii and I have to remember they're either 3 hours or 4 hours behind us. Depending on our Daylight Saving Time.
