A Norwegian official has apologised for making 2020 an hour longer.



Government minister Iselin Nybo, who is responsible for implementing Daylight Saving Time in the Scandinavian country, said sorry after confirming that the clocks will be set back an hour on Sunday (25.10.20) morning.

She said: "As minister of time, I strongly regret that 2020 will be another hour longer. This has already been a very demanding year for many."

Nybo encouraged Norwegians to look on the "bright" side of the time change.

She explained: "When we set the clock back, the night gets an hour longer. This means that when we get up on Sunday, the sun has managed to get a little further up above the horizon than at the same time the day before, and we get a brighter morning than we would otherwise have."
