It’s That Time… Literally. Daylight Saving Time Begins Sunday

Some people love it, others despise losing an hour of sleep.  Like it or not clocks around the country, and the world, will be “springing forward” in the wee hours Sunday morning, March 8th as Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m.

But where did the concept originate?  Who thought of Daylight Saving and why?

Present day, many countries around the world don’t recognize Daylight Saving Time.  In fact, some states here in America don’t practice Daylight Saving Time either.  But which states?

And after moving the clocks forward, many of us feel a bit sluggish for days.  But does the time change have any real impact on the human body?

For the answers to all of these questions, play the short video below.  You’ll be amazed by what you learn in less than 90 seconds!

Enjoy the extra hour of daylight each evening.  And just remember, you’ll regain the hour of sleep later this year when we “fall back” to end Daylight Saving Time On Sunday, November 1st.
