Do you know what time it is? Are you sure? I hope you didn’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour last night! Yes, it’s daylight savings time again!
Daylight Savings Time came into existence officially on March 19, 1918, although it was repealed a year later. During World War II, it was re-established nationally and observed from 1942 through 1945. During the energy crisis of the 70′s, Daylight Savings began in January, in 1974, and February, in 1975.
The last national change occurred in 2007, starting daylight savings the second Sunday in March and ending the first Sunday in November.
One of the biggest reasons we change our clocks to Daylight Saving Time (DST) is that it reportedly saves electricity. The theory is that we ‘make’ the sun set an hour later, spending more time outside and less inside running electrical appliances, therefore saving energy.
I hope Clay Aiken remembers the change in time. He is so busy, it’s easy to forget.
The following video is something that Clay posted when he announced that he was running for Congress! It is very interesting.
Have a great Sunday to all of you!
