About time in North America Idaho United States Boise

In practice, zone boundaries are often drawn much farther to the west with often irregular boundaries, and some locations base their time on meridians located far to the east.
For example, even though the Prime Meridian (0°) passes through Spain and France, they use the mean solar time of 15 degrees east (Central European Time) rather than 0 degrees (Greenwich Mean Time)
France previously used GMT, but was switched to CET (Central European Time) during the German occupation of the country during World War II and did not switch back after the war.
There is a tendency to draw time zone boundaries far to the west of their meridians
Many of these locations also use daylight saving time
As a result, in the summer, solar noon in the Spanish town of Muxia occurs on 14:37 (2:37pm) by the clock
This area of Spain never experiences sunset before 18:00 (6pm) local time even in midwinter, despite its lying more than 40 degrees north of the equator
Near the summer solstice, Muxia has sunset times similar to those of Stockholm, which is in the same time zone and 16 degrees further north.
A more extreme example is Nome, Alaska, which is at 165°24'W longitude—just west of center of the idealized Samoa Time Zone (165°W)
Nevertheless, Nome observes Alaska Time (135°W) with DST so it is slightly more than two hours ahead of the sun in winter and over three in summer.
Kotzebue, Alaska, also near the same meridian but north of the Arctic Circle, has an annual event on 9 August to celebrate two sunsets in the same 24-hour day, one shortly after midnight at the start of the day, and the other shortly before midnight at the end of the day.
Also, China extends as far west as 73°34'E, but all parts of it use UTC+8 (120°E), so solar "noon" can occur as late as 15:00.
Daylight saving time
Many countries, and sometimes just certain regions of countries, adopt daylight saving time (also known as "Summer Time") during part of the year
This typically involves advancing clocks by an hour near the start of spring and adjusting back in autumn ("spring" forward, "fall" back)
Some countries also use backward daylight saving over the winter period
Modern DST was first proposed in 1907 and was in widespread use in 1916 as a wartime measure aimed at conserving coal
Despite controversy, many countries have used it since then; details vary by location and change occasionally
Most countries around the equator do not observe daylight saving time, since the seasonal difference in sunlight is minimal.
France has twelve time zones including those of France, French Guiana and numerous islands, inhabited and uninhabited
