More Daylight on Its Way and Don’t Forget the Smoke Detectors [Poll]
Yipee! It’s this weekend!
Sunday is Daylight Saving Time.
Dutifully, Saturday night when we go to bed we set our clocks ahead one hour.
We know we have to do this, otherwise we’d be running around an hour behind everyone else, which would not impress your boss when you show up late for work.
Many people are not aware of why we set our clocks ahead in the Spring and back an hour in the Fall.
According to the website Date And Time, ancient civilizations practiced similar schedules, but Daylight Saving Time, or DST as we know it, started as a war time effort to conserve energy.
Regardless of how it started, many folks have strong feelings, some psychological, others physical, associated with leaping ahead and falling back.
Does DST affect you? Do you think we should do away with DST?
Also remember when you turn your clocks ahead, fire departments say that’s a great time to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors too.
