Daylight savings has ended in New Zealand with people putting their clocks back over Easter and earning an extra hour of sleep.
The official time change happened at 2am on Saturday evening
But some are questioning the need for the twice-yearly change.
WHAT IS DAYLIGHT SAVINGS?
In 1927 the Summer Time Act was passed and all clocks were moved forward one hour over the period 6 November 1927 until 4 March 1928.
The next year, and until 1945, the clocks went forward only half an hour over the summer.
The Standard Time Act was passed in 1945, which made daylight savings time permanent – and put New Zealand 12 hours ahead of Greenwich time – effectively ending daylight savings.
Finally, in 2006 a petition presented to Parliament resulted in daylight savings time being extended to its current dates – the last Sunday in September to the first Sunday in April.
