What would life be like without #time?🕘😮 #Antarctica

For the most part, daylight saving time (DST) is not observed in Antarctica because 95 percent of the continent is located south of the Antarctic Circle and the midnight sun phenomenon renders the use of DST unnecessary, and it would further complicate communication with the claimant countries in the northern hemisphere.

However, a few regions such as the Ross Dependency and Palmer Land observe the time and use of DST of the countries they are supplied from, Chile and New Zealand. The areas have DST during the southern summer, when there is the northern winter, including January.
