Almost all of Europe is switching to daylight saving time

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Most European countries on Sunday night turn the clock hands one hour ahead to summer time, informs the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland.

“Daylight saving time is carried out from Saturday to Sunday. The clock will be moved one hour forward on Sunday, March 29, at 3:00,” the report said.

The ministry clarifies that “Finland is still taking the initiative in the EU to put an end to the transfer of time.”

Finland held discussions on this topic with the Baltic countries and Northern Europe, in which only Denmark refused to participate.

Currently, Finland’s initiative to end the practice of translating watch hands in the European Union is underway . The European Parliament voted in the spring of 2019 for the Finnish proposal, which should enter into force in 2021.

The translation of the clock hands is accepted throughout the European Union.

Finland introduced daylight saving time in 1981. Other Nordic countries introduced this rule a year earlier, and Finland was the last country in Europe to decide to change the clock.
