Spring Forward!

Daylight Savings time begins again!

On Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 2:00:00 AM (or earlier!) clocks are turned forward 1 hour to become 3:00:00 AM.

Daylight Savings Time is not just a way to annoy us when we want to sleep in on Sundays.  The modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented during the First World War.

Although most of the United States used DST throughout the 1950s and 1960s, DST use expanded following the 1970s energy crisis and has generally remained in use in North America and Europe since that time.

Everybody sing along…

Daylight Saving Time 2015 ends for the year so the clock change for the fall takes place Sunday morning at 2 a.m. on November 1. Daylight Saving Time 2015 seems overdue, but it is the same time each year.

The clock changes on the first Sunday in November. Daylight Saving Time starts on the second Sunday in March each year.

And, time to sing again…
