I grew up in Budapest, Hungary; UTC+1/+2. In 2017, I moved to Zürich, Switzerlan; same time zone.
I actually love DST.
In Hungary, during the summer (UTC+2), the earliest sunrise is as early as 4:45. Between late April and early August, it’s earlier than 5:30. If DST were abolished and Hungary stayed in winter time (UTC+1) permanently, this would mean the Sun would rise before 4:30 during that period, with the earliest sunrise at 3:45, which is quite crazy. On the other hand, If Hungary permanently switched to UTC+2, the sun would rise after 8:00 from late November till early February; the latest sunrise shifting from 7:31 to 8:31. Currently, during winter, the sun sets rather early, as early as 15:52 in mid-December (with UTC+1); UTC+2 would at least give more sunlight in the afternoons, at the cost of no sunlight in the mornings (kids usually start school at 8:00, or 7:10 if they have early sessions).
In Zürich, during summer the earliest sunrise is at 5:30; with winter time, this would shift to 4:30, which is OK-ish (a bit earlier than the earliest Hungarian sunrise). The latest time the sun rises is around 8:12 here, which makes winter mornings quite gloomy. Permanently switching to summer time would push that to 9:12, which would be very bad, I think.
