This year the always-overhyped International Women's Day does not fall on a workday, which is a shame because one of the more perverse thrills is going to Subway for lunch on those days and literally having a woman make me a sandwich.
This year though is almost better: by falling on the second Sunday in March, it also falls on the same day as the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. At 2am this morning all clocks in Canada and the United States (excepting Saskatchewan) changed to 3am, the infamous "spring ahead". Why is that interesting/important? Well, because that means...
International Women's Day 2020 is officially the shortest day of the year.
I don't even mean "day" as shorthand for "daytime" like we do on the winter solstice every year: it literally is shorter. International Women's Day is only 23 hours long, unlike 24 days for every other day (excepting the end of Daylight Savings Time which is, of course, 25 hours to "make up" the one lost to today.
Maybe we should make that International Men's Day...
