Officially, the EU (European Union) has decided to stop changing the clocks in 2019.

Individuals in Europe knows about the twice yearly clock changes. You know, in my country or continent, there is nothing like that so when I first heard of how it is done in Europe, I was really amazed.

I was chatting with a friend in Germany and I asked him about the time at his place and it was two hours ahead of that of Ghana. The next time during our talks, I was like hey, what is the time at your place and surprisingly, his country's (Germany) time reduced to one hour ahead of ours (Ghana); that was when I decided to research about it and realised that, it is something widely done in Europe each and every year; guess what, it is about to be stopped in 2019.
The EU has agreed to do away with such twice yearly clock changes.

Majority of the Europeans are in support of the idea because they think the clock changes have been having certain negative impacts on their sleep, health and their occupation. Others on the other hand are against the idea because they think it may result in time zone chaos in Europe.

Amid all the debate and controversies, the fact still remains - the European Union will do away with the twice yearly clock changes in Europe in 2019.
