Daylight savings time is upon us but do you know how it started? Many think that it was to benefit the farmers, but that is just not true. Throughout history, farmers adjusted to the daylight hours without worrying about the time on the clock face…work when it is light and sleep when it is not is not rocket science! No, daylight saving time (not savings like so many think) was actually a fuel saving measure. Government implemented daylight saving time, or “Fast Time” as it was called was introduced in 1918 and repealed 7 months later. It wasn’t until 1942 that Roosevelt instituted the time change as we know it now.
Whether or not you like or even agree with taking an hour from one end of the day and adding to the other to make a “longer” day, one thing that I love about the time change is that it means spring is around the corner!
