Question of the Week: Do You Like Shorter or Longer Days?

This weekend Daylight Saving Time comes to an end for another year - leaving us with shorter days.

This weekend for most of the United States, Daylight Saving Time ends and Eastern Standard Time begins at 2 a.m. on Nov. 4.

That means the length of the day will be shorter as winter approaches. According to Time and Date, on Sunday you can expect the sun to rise at 7 a.m. and set at 5:42 a.m.

All states, with the exception of Arizona and Hawaii, along with the territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa, recognize Daylight Saving Time every spring.

InfoPlease.com reports, in April 2005 Indiana passed a law agreeing to observe daylight saving time with the rest of the country. Then four months later, Congress passed an energy bill that included extending Daylight Saving Time by about a month. In 2007, DST began on the second Sunday of March and ended on the first Sunday of November and has been that way to date.

So as we get ready to fall back this weekend, our question to you:

Do You Like Shorter Days or Longer Days, and Why? Tell us in comments.
