Next weekend, more precisely in the night from Saturday to Sunday, the clock will be changed again in our country. Okay, not only in our country but in all EU countries. Then the so-called wintertime will prevail in our country again.

How Is The Clock Changed?
In the night from Saturday to Sunday, the clock is changed exactly at 3.00 o’clock. It will be set back by one hour to 2.00. For your children, this means that you can stay in bed one hour longer in the morning. This new time is called Wintertime and will remain so until the end of March next year.
Not Everyone Can Tolerate This Time Change
The clock is only set back one hour, but not everyone can handle it right away. Kids your age usually tolerate it just fine, but babies not so much. Like many old people, they have to get used to the new time slowly. But it’s not just people who have to adjust, it’s animals, too. Imagine that on this Sunday morning, the farmer doesn’t come into the barn to his cows until 7 o’clock. They don’t like that at all, because they’ve actually been waiting for milking for an hour. That’s why a farmer in Baden-Württemberg started milking his cows five minutes later every day a long time ago. This way, the cows could slowly adjust to wintertime and therefore now have no problems with the new time on the coming Sunday.
Explanation Of The Difficult Words:
The Winter time is actually called normal time. During the changeover from daylight saving time to standard time, the clock is set back by one hour. Next March there will be another time changeover, from winter time to summer time. At the changeover from standard time (also winter time) to daylight saving time, the clock is set forward by one hour. In English, daylight saving time is also referred to as daylight saving time.
