I love the late sunsets of DST. Unfortunately, I'm moving to a place where they don't observe it. I don't think it's the end of the world or anything, but I love those 8:30+ sunsets.

Right now sunset is past 9pm and it throws off sleep cycle.

9-10 pm is fine in summer. 11pm or even later is OK (except for making stargazing impossible), I don't generally need as much sleep in the summer.

Winter about 6pm is early enough. 3-4pm which we get is just too early. I'd take a month or two of post-9am sunrises to be rid of it. But it's early spring when we really waste daylight: by mid-March it's light at 6am, but it sets at 6pm. BST should start in February, if we must change the clocks. As others have said, Spain is the place that gets it right. Never suffers early sunsets and keeps it light in summer to enjoy the warm evenings. My body clock loved it there.

Spain? Think about the siestas and the 10pm dinners.

But Spain isn't on our latitude so it can never be replicated..

W. Spain is roughly W. Ireland's longitude, so most of Spain should fall on western part of GMT zone and the western fall on eastern part of GMT-1. So in the summer, western Spain has a solar noon closer to 3pm than 2pm!!! With not-so-big variation of daylight hours (Spain is southern Europe), it shapes different schedules, including the siestas, 10pm dinners, etc. Just like Xinjiang (in W. China), with roughly the same offset from solar time (during summer time) and latitude, but the difference is W. China adopt an unofficial timezone, GMT+6 (even with this timezone, the extreme western part of China has a year-round DST effect - the westernmost / 73.5 E fall just west of the GMT+5 meridian!!!)

Kasghar, China

Earliest sunrise : 7:28am
Latest Sunrise : 10:16am
Earliest Sunset : 7:32pm
Latest Sunset : 10:27pm

Vigo, Spain

Earliest Sunrise : 6:57am
Latest Sunrise : 9:03am (if the country implemented year-round DST, it will be 10:03am)
Earliest Sunset : 6:02pm (if the country implemented year-round DST, it will be 7:02pm)
Latest Sunset : 10:16pm
