As far as I'm concerned, for way way up north at the arctic circle it doesn't really make sense either. I dwell on the arctic circle, after all.

During the darkest period up here there's only a few hours of actual sunlight, and it's basically dark when you go to work, and it's dark when you get off. Besides, not that many people work in the fields anymore, but in offices, cubicles and factories. During the summer on the other hand - and ironically starting from around when the clocks are switched during springtime, it doesn't matter either, as the days are already getting long here.

For instance, today the sun rose at 4:54 am and it will set at 9:39 pm, the day being already 16 hours and 45 minutes long.
