Like it or not, 2020 is slowly coming to a close.
And this morning, the people of Ireland and many other regions around the world woke up in pure puzzlement that we had woken up earlier than usual. Yep, it's the bi-annual clocks go back/clocks go forward morning situation.
Well, at least it means we all got an extra hour in bed, right? True. But with October 2020 making us set our clocks back than extra hour, it does mean we'll have shorter days from now on. Oh, and an extra hour of 2020 to boot.
Here are some of the best reactions Twitter has had to the clocks going back this morning.
How about that puuuurfect lie in this morning, eh?

Hear hear, bring back the big tubs of Christmas sweets.
Clocks go back this weekend.
I'm putting mine back to the time we had Woolworths, when tubs of Celebrations were a decent size, Saturday morning was filled with Live & Kicking and nobody ever thought to panic buy toilet roll #ClocksGoBack

Nobody wants an extra hour of this year.

Has anyone seen Bernard and his watch these days?
Don’t forget to put the clocks back to 2019 tonight, and take the fucking battery out.... #clocksgoback

And finally, a huge shout out to workers out there who worked the extra hour, wherever you are.
Shoutout to everyone in the nhs, who (like myself), are working this hour again... making a 12.5 hour shift into a 13.5 hour shift with no extra pay for it🙂🥳 #clocksgoback
