Heh. Try explaining the concept to 99.9% of humanity ;-) I live near farm country. Every year, when DST ends in late fall, there are "letters to the editor" complaining that the late crops really _need_ more sunlight - why can't the damn fool city-slicker politicians just leave the sun alone, as God created it?
I spent some time in rural southern Mexico, where people referred to DST as "government time" and non-DST as "God's time."
Most local affairs were scheduled on "God's time," even when DST was supposed to be in effect.
