ps - daylight savings time

ps - I don't have daylight savings until the 28th.  I was thinking from all the facebook statuses (and events! - seriously, who needs an event for that?...) that it was today, but further investigation told me otherwise.

I don't think I'd wondered much about daylight savings in other countries until now, now that I'm living in one.  It anyone's interested, here's a list of the dates and times of daylight savings in 2010, by country.

I'm surprised by how many countries don't recognize daylight savings.  It looks like more don't have DST than do.  Who decides?  Some of the places that don't have DST in 2010:

  • Afghanistan
  • Algeria
  • China
  • Costa Rica
  • India
  • Hawaii, Arizona, US Virgin Islands
Interesting... I may have to look more into this.
