My favorite day of the year

Everyone has favorites. This is especially true for things like days. Some people prefer Fridays because it's the last day of the work week. Others prefer Sunday because they get to go to worship that day. If you ask someone what their favorite day of the year is, they will typically say a holiday. I am not one of those people.

My favorite day of the year is "Fall Back" day. There is nothing greater than waking up an hour late and still being on time. It gives a renewed energy for at least a week or two as your body adjusts. Yes, fall back day is pretty special. Of course the Arch Enemy (and consequently least favorite day of the year) is "Spring Forward" day. It usually takes a full month for my body to adjust to the dastardly deeds of Spring Forward day.

I propose a new way of life. I propose that we just get rid of Spring Forward day all together. Every year, we each get an hour back. Of course for 12 years we'll be living in darkness. We can just refer to those as the Dark Ages. I think living in the dark is way better than moving clocks forward an hour.

Who's with me? Hurray Fall Back! BOOOOOO Spring Forward!
