Brazil postpones summer time two more weeks


Summer time in Brazil will start on 18 November instead of 4 November, 2018.

The postponement comes at the request of the Ministry of Education, in an effort to avoid clock change on the night before the national high school examination on 4 November. (We wonder how many students will show up one hour early for the test, as a result of mobile phones showing the wrong time.)

The start date had already been postponed two weeks in a decision last year.

Brazil has four time zones. Daylight Saving Time is observed in two of them.

Update: The government changed their mind, and the summer time start date is now 4 November, 2018.
