Practice advancing clocks by one hour from Standard time In the summer and back in the fall is known as Daylight saving time (DST). The general idea is that by doing this, we can all make better use of natural daylight.

For example, when the clocks are moved forward an hour in the spring, we have more light in the evening during the summer, and when the clocks are moved back an hour in the fall, we have more light in the morning during the winter.

When does the time change?

Daylight saving time always begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. People often say “spring forward, backward” to remember which direction their watches should be set.

  • DST starts on Sunday March 13, 2022 at 2:00 AM To “spring forward” the clocks are moved forward 1 hour on a Saturday night, losing 1 hour in the process.
  • DST ends on Sunday 6 November 2022 at 2:00 AM In order to “retreat” the hours “go forward” one hour on a Saturday night.

We usually change our clocks before we go to bed on Saturday because the time changes at 2:00 AM

Although many of us are guilty of speaking it incorrectly, the correct term is “daylight saving time” and not “daylight saving time” (with an extra “s”). The term “save,” according to the technical definition, is singular because it functions as an adjective rather than as a verb.

Why do we have daylight saving time?

William Willett An Englishman, he was the first ardent supporter of the movement. It was a builder in London who had this concept in 1907 while his horse was jogging early in the morning. Despite the sunrise, he noticed that many of the houses’ shutters were carefully closed.

Willett said that everyone enjoys long, light evenings “a waste of daylight” Manifesto of his personal crusade to save the light.

Willet invested a large amount of money in paying entrepreneurs, legislators and U.S. Congress To advance the clocks by 20 minutes on each of the four Sundays in April and backwards on the same Sundays in September. But most people laughed at his suggestion.

One group rejected it on ethical grounds, claiming that the practice amounted to “lying” about the passage of real time.

In order to save gasoline during First World WarIn 1915, the Germans were the first to officially use a light extension system. British summer timewhich ran from May 21 to October 1 of that year, was established in 1916.

When Congress passed Standard time lawwhich established time zones, was followed by the United States in 1918. But there was a lot of popular hostility to this.

The US government has created a committee in Congress to consider the advantages of daylight saving time. Many Americans saw this habit as a foolish attempt to force sleepers to get up early. Others believed that observing “clock time” rather than “sun time” was against nature.
