    Which one of the following months - October, November, and December - is the longest one?

    (Perhaps I should say that I'm sure of the answer if you are an European citizen. If it is the same answer applies in the rest of the world, I'm not 100% sure of. Take it as a hint or just an information.)

    October has an extra hour - I assume this is what you mean.

    That's the keyword here.

    Is this used throughout the world? Is it used in your country?

    In Australia we call it either Summer Time or Daylight Saving - although I've noticed the "s" appearing on the "Saving" recently - the legislation uses "Saving" so I think it's just like the greengrocer's apostrophe. The official acronyms are AET (Australian Eastern Time) or AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time).

    I'd suggest that countries closer to the equator have less need of daylight saving time and those nmearer the poles probably need to put their clocks back more than an hour!

    I hate when it's dark when I go to work, and dark when I return home. I just hate that. And I'm living only 57 degrees north, far from the pole.
