Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of changing the clocks forward one hour from standard time during the summer months, and changing them back again in the fall. Find out when the seasons start here. The general idea is that this allows us all to make better use of natural daylight, however, DST has many detractors.
Note that it’s called “Daylight Saving” (not “Savings”). OK, now that THAT’S out of the way …
Every spring more than 70 countries around the world turn their clocks an hour ahead for daylight-saving time. If billions of people are literally shifting time twice a year, there must be a pretty good reason why we’re doing it, right? Not necessarily.
