How About Turning your Clocks Back Twenty-Five hours Instead of Just One ?

Most folks I know turned their clocks back One Hour last night.  That's because the end of Daylight Savings time is here.  So now, it gets darker one hour earlier today than it did yesterday.

That, of course, gave ALL of us one extra hour yesterday (Saturday) to finish all the things on our "To Do" list.

The younger you are, the less trouble or confusion messing with that "one extra hour" will cause you.  But some of us older kids... well... just that one hour can mess with what the sleep doctors call our "circadian rhythms."  For some of us, it will take weeks to adjust. 

Also, it not only affects humans, but plants and animals, as well.  I have even read stories by dairy farmers... that even their milk-producing cows can have a difficult time adjusting.

I don't know about you, but just that extra one hour we got yesterday really doesn't help me catch up with all the "stuff" on my "to do" list... so I am proposing a new idea.

What if... instead of doing the "same old, same old" routine of turning our clocks back only ONE hour to get that extra hour of sleep, or work-time... what IF... we turned our clocks back TWENTY-FIVE hours ?

Instead of getting an extra hour, we would get an entire extra DAY.  We could use it for work... or... we could use it for sleep.  I am tired... I could use the sleep.  So... for almost all of you... today is Sunday.  For me... I get the full extra 25 hours... so for me, it is still Saturday.

I have been reaching into the far corners of my brain... dusting out the cobwebs... and thinking about this.

So... whaddya say ?  Could it work ?

Just wondering...
