Daylight Savings ends....Set Your clocks back 1 hour (1)

Remember to Fall Back this Weekend

Love it or hate it, daylight saving time officially ends this Sunday at 2:00 am.  Clocks across the country will be pushed back an hour…hopefully.  But why do we do it?  What’s the deal with daylight savings time anyway?

Good old Ben Franklin first had the idea.  I’m beginning to think it was not one of his best ideas.  Others played with the notion throughout time but it was never acted on until World War One.  In 1918, Congress  approved of the Standard Time Act giving us our first taste of daylight saving time.  Although it was repealed shortly after, many states kept while others did not.  Finally in 1966, Congress acted again and daylight saving time as we know started.  When it begins and when it ends has changes every now and then, but for now, it begins the second Sunday in March and ends, well now…the first Sunday in November.  Unless of course you live in Arizona, or parts of it, and Hawaii.  They don’t bother with it all.

Some claim it’s a waste of energy.  Others say it’s bad for your health.  Reports claim crime drops during daylight saving time.  And who doesn’t love those long, summer nights?  So, what do you think?  Love it?  Hate it?  Let us know!
