The 56,000 people in Greenland will soon be acclimating to a new time zone, and depending on which side of the hot daylight saving debate you’re on in the US, you might be envious.

On March 25, Greenland will move its clocks forward one hour to UTC -2 time zone for the summer, just as it has done in the past. Except starting this year, it will stay in that time zone for good. No more suffering through twice-yearly clock changes; come October, Greenland won’t roll back to standard time like they will in the rest of Europe and the US.
