Wow, our switchback to standard time isn't until next Sunday... so we get one more week of half-&ssed "daylight" lingering until around 6pm and then the sudden plunge into pitch black suppertimes. The sop to our feelings is that at least the sun then starts straggling out of bed before a quarter to 8am -- if it even bothers to do that during the greys of November and December. I share your feelings, at least until January and return of the light!
For us, it usually takes place on the Saturday of the last week-end of October.
However, in mainland Europe, the clocks go back on the last week-end of September, following rapidly on the heels of the autumnal equinox, which brings both earlier dusk and darkness - signalling the unwelcome onset of winter all too soon, to my mind.
