Default Time change/light change

I was curious as to what some people do with Daylight Saving Time starts and ends. Do you change your hedgies light schedule along with the time changes or just leave them the same?

It changes along with the clock, just like mine does. I try to make their transition a bit easier on them by shifting snuggle time by half an hour leading up to the change, but many of my daily commitments make going "off clock" quite impossible. Changing the light schedule is bit easier... on a timer. I do a half hour offset for about a week.

I just leave my timer set the same, they don't even notice anything different.

Mine comes on at 7am and turns off at 8pm all year round. At 8pm I cover his cage with a blanket to make it darker for him.

I don't change mine up at all. Heck, I honestly don't even know if my timers are on the right time.
