The new law is again an attempt to save energy. So DST starts three weeks earlier. The one week delay on the end is to avoid Halloween trick or treaters from going out in the new darkness.

OK and tks for that, interesting

Energy policy my arse. I don't know of the reasons for the March change but the change from October to November is because of the candy industry (an extra hour of daylight Halloween evening is apparently worth a lot of money to them).
