29th February 2016 will have only 12 hours.

1st March 2016 will begin at midday on 29th February.

Henceforth, the day will change at midday instead of midnight.

The 24 hour clock will swap around, so 1800 will be in the morning and 0600 will be in the evening.

Monday morning will be immediately followed by Tuesday afternoon, then Tuesday evening, Tuesday night, and then after that Tuesday morning.

       Baked. In your 18th century, the Royal Navy changed the day of their ship's logs at sea at noon.

       Wouldn’t it be more convenient to simply say that on that day, each 30 minutes in an hour past the hour belong to the current day, and each 30 minutes past the half hour belong to the following day. The latter are all replicated the following day, so we’ll be back to normal the day after that.

       What does this accomplish?

       In my time reckoning Monday only lasts 8 hours long. Then its Tuesday. Friday starts Thursday night after work.
