I have the correct time but it says CST for Central Standard. Why doesn't it say CDST?

Standard time is what we have in the winter. Daylight Savings time is what we have in the summer. I know this is counter-intuitive since we are on Dayling Savings Time for longer than we are on Standard time. But when the whole thing was introduced, it was the summer time that got shifted.

The above comments are regarding the US. You mentioned "Central Time" so that would be appropriate.

Many other places add an "S" for Summer into zone designation, while the US puts an "S" for Standard for the winter time.
