How do some countries not have daylight savings? Do they move the countries so there in the right time zone?

    Yes, then they move them back 6 months later.  Its a massive job, takes lots of equipment and the noise is incredible.

    If a country is closer to the equator, there's no benefit to changing the clocks.  Australia has daylight saving in the south but not the north for that reason.

    That is why the Western Imperialisms started.

    Many countries are small enough in longitudinal width that one time zone works fine. Others - like Russia, Australia, Brazil, and the US - cross enough meridians that trying to keep everyone on *one* time zone simply doesn't work.

    Because "daylight savings " (where I live it's called "summer-time") is a scam. It does not "save light" at all.

    It just makes people do everything an hour earlier, and messes up your biorhythm twice a year

    The Democrats yet again. DST doesn't save money or time. In the 19th century DST was needed to keep trains on schedule.

    If you live in the tropics -- its sort of unnecessary

    They don't have to adjust the time if the governments of those countries feel that it's not needed.  But of course they don't move countries!  How could you imagine that they would?

    And please learn the difference between 'there' and 'they're'.  And possibly 'their'.
