This would be quite be confusing: there would be two
New Year's in a row. Obviously, the step has to be done
from 02 h to 01 h (or even later). That is corroborated
by the decree 34/2018, online at
"A hora legal do Pais, que coincide com o tempo
universal coordenado, será reposta às 2 horas, no
dia 1 de Janeiro de 2019."
[The legal time of the country, which coincides with
universal coordinated time, will be restituted at 2 o'clock
on day 1 of January, 2019.]
The decree has been published on 2018-12-11.
