This Sunday, March 8th, will be Daylight Saving Time.
Don't forget to set your clock one hour ahead before you go to bed on Saturday. You don't want to get left behind when everyone else springs ahead!
If on Monday you climb in your car and realize that the clock in your vehicle is harder to change than it should be (why are those ones so much harder to change than house clocks?) stop on by. We would love to help you!
Some Quick Fun Facts About Daylight Saving Time
1. Ancient civilizations used comparable practices to Daylight Saving Time (DST) long before it became what it is today. The Roman water clocks used different scales for different months of the year to adjust the daily schedules to the solar time.
2. DST was first introduced by New Zealand scientist George Vernon Hudson and British builder William Willett in 1895. They first suggested a 2-hour shift forward in October and a 2-hour shift back in March.
3. Ontario, Canada was the first place to use Daylight Saving Time (DST) in 1908
4. Germany and Austria were the first countries to use DST in 1916
5. DST was first used in the United States during WWI in 1918 and was known then as "fast time." It was repealed and returned again during WWII in 1942 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
