Between 8-9 PM, I love how the sun sets late in the summer.

I like the variation in sunrise/sunset times and think that having close to the same times year round is strange. That said, I love the late sunsets in the summer. Plenty of daylight after work! And although I do like the daylight variation throughout the year, I do wish that summer time was made standard and then kept there year round.

10pm in summer, 3pm in winter. I don't like the middle ground 7am/7pm sunrise/sunset times.

6:30- 7pm, only because I have to start work in hideous sub-daylight hours, ,so can never really enjoy the back end of the day.

no specific times, but 16h for longest day and 8h for shortest seems perfect. everything above that is just excessive.

Not exactly, but very very close to what Seattle experiences.

If I had to pick one time it would be 5 PM, although I prefer for winter sunsets to be an hour or two earlier than that, coupled with long winter twilights (epic cloudscapes and snow flurries optional but recommended). If it wasn't physically impossible, I'd like 6 hour days in winter and 10 hour days in summer. Evening and early morning is supposed to be dark, not lit up like it's high noon.

Why do people like to have the sun for such long hours? For me the night is nice and relaxing. Where as daytime is all stress and being blinded by the blazing sun.
I agree with that.

Long daylights, and late sunsets, means Late night prayers, and long fastings.
