Daylight Saving Time Starts from March 14

As per reports, it has been revealed that Congress has changed the date of Daylight Saving Time from this year. Earlier, it used to be from April to October but now it will run from March 11 to November 4. There are some states which will not be taking part in the Daylight Saving Time, and those include Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

The US is not alone to take such initiate as there are 75 countries and territories which will be observing it at different point of time. Experts said that it was brain child of Benjamin Franklin to observe Daylight Saving Time and Britain and Germany were the first two countries, which observed the event during World War 1 to save energy.

In addition, it has also been revealed that Indiana has also joined other 47 states in the event. They will also be setting their clocks one hour before for daylight saving time. The US has always remained consistent in such activities; however its efforts were not recognized until World War II.

Experts said that by setting clock one hour before means that people will lose one hour of sleep, but the good part of the story is that sunset will be delayed one hour. The main reason for having this event is to effectively utilize daylight in the evenings.

Even an extra one hour can give a great social evening. It holds special importance for children and it will also give ample time for outdoor tourism activities. Thinking the event, from safety point view then there will be less highway accidents and it will also help people to save electricity as increased day- light means less use of lights.
