Who’s idea was this? Why do we do this? And doesn’t it seem late this year? For the answer to those and other Daylight Saving Trivia read on…
- Benjamin Franklin conceived of the idea while in Paris in 1784 because he thought the French were using too much lamp oil.
- William Willett, a London builder, proposed a way to implement the idea in 1907 using 20 minute increments four times per year but the idea never took off.
- Standard time zones were driven by the railroad. As rapid transportation became more common a standard time measure was necessary for scheduling. They were instituted on November 18, 1883 and established into law in 1918.
- Franklin Delano Roosevelt instituted year-round Daylight Saving Time during WWII as a way to conserve fuel that was needed for the war effort.
- The Department of Transportation has been responsible for time zones and Daylight Saving Time since 1966.
- The Uniform Time Act of 1966 standardized Daylight Saving Time in the US.
- The Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed the dates to the 2nd Sunday in March and the 1st Sunday in November.
- Until 2005 Indiana allowed each county to decide whether to observe Daylight Saving Time or not.
- Daylight Saving Time is not mandatory and is not observed in Arizona or Hawaii.
- In other countries Daylight Saving Time is known as Summer Time Period.
- The reasons to switch to Daylight Saving Time are to conserve energy, prevent crime and reduce traffic accidents. It has nothing to do with farming, which is a common mis-perception.
- Daylight Saving Time officially begins at 2am instead of midnight so as not to change the date.
- The rhyme to remember which way to turn the clocks is “Spring forward; Fall back”.
- And don’t forget to change those smoke/carbon monoxide detectors while you’re at it.
