Sunday, March 11: Daylight Saving Time (DST) Begins

  • Details: Don’t forget to reset your clocks one hour ahead. Here are some facts about DST:

·        In 2018, DST in the U.S. begins at 2 a.m., when the clock will be set one hour ahead. It will end on November 4 at 2 a.m. 

·        The official term for this phenomenon is "Daylight Saving Time," and not "Daylight Savings Time," as searched by many people on Google. Some countries refer to DST as "Summer Time."

·        The American states of Hawaii and most of Arizona do not observe DST. U.S. territories like Puerto Rico, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam also do not observe DST.

·        One of the United States’ founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin, conceived the idea of daylight saving in 1784. 

·        DST was first implemented in the U.S. during the First World War, to save fuel by reducing the need to use artificial lighting. After a period of disuse, it was again enforced during World War II and continued to be practiced until three weeks after the war ended.

·        The Uniform Time Act of 1966 established the system of uniform DST throughout the U.S.
