DAYLIGHT SAVINGS IS APPROACHING: DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE YOUR CLOCK BACK 1 HOUR! See the Chart for your time and date.


This is a reminder that it is time to turn your clocks back 1 hour. Yay... 

To many daylight savings time is confusing and a hassle unless it is summer and we get an extra hour of sunlight.  During Winter months, daylight savings seems a bit depressing as the days seem to feel shorter. Many wonder what the real purpose is. Do we really save time and energy or is it more of an inconvenience sending our children off to school while it is still a bit dark outside? Is it even necessary to throw us all off by an hour?  This practice has been used for over 100 years, originating in Germany on April 30, 1916. But even way before that in Ancient times, civilizations would adjust their daily schedules according to the sun's schedule. In an effort to support the World War 1 efforts, President Woodrow Wilson signed DLS into law in the United States in 1918. It was repealed and than re-implemented year round in 1942. Today daylight savings is used in over 70 countries and confuses over a billion people ever year.
