Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend
Daylight Saving (not “savings”) Time ends this weekend. As if the sun going down before 6:00 wasn’t depressing enough, it’ll start to get dark at 4:50 Monday afternoon.
Modern daylight saving time dates back to around 1895 when New Zealand entomologist George Vernon Hudson wanted more daylight time to collect insects. Between 1895 and the early 1900s, the concept was kicked around by numerous people and government bodies around the world. The United States’ version of daylight saving time dates back to 1918 and has been repealed and/or modified and/or reinstated several times.
And don’t forget, along with changing your clocks, remember to check or change the battery in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors!
