When does daylight saving time finish in France?

Daylight saving ("summer time") in France and all other EU countries (and some non-EU countries) runs from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October. The clock change, forwards in spring in backwards in autumn, always occurs at 01:00 UTC (GMT). The end of daylight saving time in France therefore occurs at 03:00 Central European Summer Time, when the clocks go back to 02:00 Central European Time. In 2008, this happened on 26 October.

Why do the New England states have Daylight Savings Time?

The New England states observe Daylight Saving Time along with most other states in the U.S. to make better use of daylight during the longer days of spring and summer, resulting in energy savings and promoting outdoor activities. This practice is regulated at the federal level, so all states within the country adhere to the same schedule.


When the clocks go forward for Daylight Saving Time why does time not catch up with Spain who are one hour in front as the clocks there do not move?

During Daylight Saving Time, most regions in Western Europe move their clocks forward one hour to gain more daylight. Spain is an exception, as it follows Central European Time and does not adjust for Daylight Saving Time. This causes Spain to temporarily be on the same time as nearby countries that observe Daylight Saving Time.
