When the days become shorter and the Evening starts early Afternoon.
In Denmark the phrase Summertime is not only meaning the specific summer season, but it is also a half-yearly change in the time zone by putting the clock forward an hour during the period of Summer. To the Danes, it means that the last Sunday in March at two o’clock at night, they have to put the clock forward an hour. Modern digital times have made it easy to remember by process automation in smart phones, clocks and watches. By that, the era of “forgetting to set the time ahead and meeting in late or early at work” is over.

When Autumn comes, the time zone in Denmark is being changed back to normal by putting the clocks backwards an hour. The last Sunday in October the clock is set back at precisely three o’clock at night.
Back to darker days. Back to the ray of day light ending around two on a December Afternoon and the long Evening is custom made for lit candles and hygge.
