Daylight Saving Time, Interesting Facts

Ever wonder why we turn the clocks back every fall (the first Sunday in November at 2am) and turn the clocks forward each spring (the second Sunday in March at 2am)?

The main purpose of daylight saving time was to make better use of daylight in the summer by moving one hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. There have been studies that show that electricity is saved by setting the clocks ahead in the summer, but automobile accidents involving pedestrians increase the week after we change the clocks back.

Today approximately 70% of the world observes daylight saving time in at least a portion of the countries except for Japan, Indian and China. To read more about all the interesting facts go to http://goo.gl/UWLli.

Don’t forget to set your clocks back this Sunday morning at 2am, or if you are like me do it before you go to be Saturday night.
