Daylight Savings Ends is a celebration of the end of the summer period and the return to standard time. The event takes place every year on the first Sunday of November in almost the entire United States. On this day, residents set their clocks back one hour. As a result, we wake up one hour earlier the next day.
The principle of two-season timekeeping is as follows – in the summer people move the clock forward one hour, and in the fall – one hour back. Thus, in the bright and warm season, there is an opportunity to enjoy the sun and excellent weather for one hour more. The “summer season” lasts 8 months, as decided by the US Congress in 2007. Daylight saving time is set in March (second Sunday) and standard time is set in November (first Sunday).
Benjamin Franklin said that the habit of going to bed early and rising early will make you wise, healthy, and also rich. It was he who first proposed the idea of using sunlight and daylight hours to the full extent, but he did not talk about the translation of the clock. How to switch to summer and winter time, proposed by George Hudson, he spoke about this during a report to the Wellington Philosophical Society.
- Not all US states change their clocks, Arizona and Hawaii do not, because the law gives local authorities the right to independently determine such a need.
- Initially, the idea was not popular, because at that time people at any time of the year went to bed and woke up early. President Wilson vetoed the DST document, but the US Congress overruled it.
- The daylight saving time schedule varies by region and country.
- In the period from 1945 to 1966, there was no legislation that would regulate the transition to winter and summer time, the states independently chose what to do, this caused confusion and confusion in the work of transport companies.
- About 40 countries do not switch to daylight saving time, they are located near the equator.
