Daylight Savings Time (DST) was first thought of in the 1700 and 1800s however was first implemented during the first World War. They were using it as a way to conserve coal during the war.
What does DST do for us? In a nutshell, the idea is people need more sunlight during evening hours as it gets dark sooner. Also daylight hours were being wasted in the early morning while you are sleeping.
There is much frustration with changing clocks twice a year along with the implications. Keeping track of what time it is in other timezones can be confusing. Many countries also have exceptions to DST.
Technology has not reached a point where things can “automatically” happen. There are still a lot of manual clocks to adjust.
When it comes to DST, are you siding with the love or the hate?
