THIS NIGHT - The annual time travel

We all travel back in time together again for one hour. The joint trip starts, as usual, at 2 a.m. and we go back exactly one hour. This means we have one hour more time this night.

Because it is customary on the Spanish mainland for the changeover to take place at 3 a.m., it was decided on the Canary Islands to change at the same moment, which means that the Canaries already set their clocks back at 2 a.m. (like the UK and Ireland).

Whether the clock was showing 2 or 3 at the time of the change, there is an extra hour to sleep or party, depending on personal preference. What do you do with the 'gift' hour?
