Idiom of the Week

This week’s idiom is “Ora Legale” or in English “Daylight Savings Time”.

The English idiom of “Daylight Savings Time” emphasizes the benefit of the moving forward of the clocks to have an extra hour of daylight in the evenings. The Italian “Ora Legale” meanwhile simply translates to “legal time”.

Tonight, March 9, 2013, will conclude, until the autumn, the “Ora Solare” or the “Standard Time”, in the English idiom.  The Italian “Ora Solare” literally translates to “solar time”, this is when clocks are at the true time as indicated by the pattern of the sun.

Don’t forget that at 2am, March 10th, your clocks need to get set an hour ahead to commence the “Ora Legale”!
