February 30 existed from 1930-1931 after the Soviet Union introduced a revolutionary calendar in 1929. This calendar featured five-day weeks, 30-day months for every working month, and the remaining five or six days were “monthless” holidays. The abolition of the seven-day week in favor of a five-day week was intended to improve industrial efficiency by avoiding the regular interruption of a non-working day.Due to some fancy federal legislation called the Energy Policy Act of 2005 the end of Daylight Saving Time will conveniently take place two days before the presidential election, giving people an hour of refresh to ponder this exciting thing called democracy, and how much they'll enjoy the rule of Rodham.
However, the Gregorian calendar continued to be used in the Soviet Union during this period. This is confirmed by consulting the successive dates in daily issues of Pravda, the official newspaper of the Communist Party, in which February had 28 days in 1930 and 1931, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. The Soviet revolutionary calendar was eventually discarded as it was difficult to eliminate the Sunday rest tradition. The original seven-day week was restored in 1940.
It's enough to make me suspicious that DST is a Communist plot.
