I don’t. The main reason I do not is that I like clocks for their variety and I have over twenty, thus, adjusting them every six months is a really aggravating.

I'd prefer not to turn the clocks back / forward . It's not natural. My little dog has not yet adjusted to the turning back of the clock and his pattern of behaviour is disrupted.
However I remember the time of the experimental scrapping of daylight saving and remember people complaining about it .

I don't mind when the clocks go back and I get an extra hour in bed - hate it when they go forward!! I think I would prefer they left the clocks alone

I would prefer the clocks not to change. If people and businesses want to start and finish an hour later/earlier, then it should be them that change. Although since retiring I stopped using a clock as such, I get up when I want and go to bed when I want, and all have to fit around that.

I used to not care one way or the other, but now it seems to mess a bit more with me. I miss Arizona, they don't change time there and it seemed to be just fine.

I leave one clock alone for the animals schedule, I change the other one for dealing with people. I personally do not need one at all. LOL

My evenings/nights don't alter all year round, the only thing that does differ is that the lights go on earlier at this time of year.
