25 October 2009


Every last Sunday of October begins the winter time: the end of the summer time. If it is winter, the clock is set one hour backward, instead of 3 in the morning that will be 2 a.m.
The "winter" is actually the normal time and lasts five months. In transition to winter time the daylight period switches an hour back which make in the morning earlier light and in the evening earlier dark. In the Netherlands the distinction between summer and winter time is  reintroduced in 1977: from 1916 to 1945 was also the summer time  reinforced .

The setting of the time is based on the position of the sun, its daylight.
Welcome Winter Time! :(

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
