During the "Energy Crisis" in the mid 1970s Michigan decided to be on DST all year, but it caused more problems than it solved. Children had to go to school when it wasn't daylight, and when a couple of children were hit by a car (they were not injured severely) there was an outcry, and DST was repealed.
When a survey among children on Santa's "Naughty List" asked them if, given a choice between getting lumps of coal or a Pay-TV subscription the result was UNANIMOUS, they all chose to get coal! :
