A memorandum was issued today by the Lebanese government to postpone Daylight Saving Time, which was set to start on Sunday March 26, until April 21 which marks the end of the Ramadan month. In other words, people fasting during the holy month of Ramadan won’t need to do so for an “additional hour”.

I wasn’t aware that one can postpone daylight saving especially when all our phones, laptops, servers and systems switch automatically now. Add to that airports and financial systems. I suppose since nothing is functioning properly in Lebanon to begin with, there’s not much impact if we push DST by a month or so.

In all cases, don’t forget to turn off the automatic time change on ur phones and laptops, at least until April 21.
