Daylight Saving Time
Heading to the Spring
Spring will be officially started in few weeks, so it's just a matter of time and we will soon wake up warming up in the sun...as there is the crisis all over the world, we need to save somehow...and every year around this time we save daylight. Daylight Saving Time is often called Summer Time or DST, it's for using better the daylight n the evenings by setting the clocks forward one hour during the longer days of summer, and back again in the fall. In many countries it's observed but in many still not, they don't see any good in it.
But it's so useful, the one extra hour of light can fewer so many road accidents and different injuries. It's also believed to give to the children more social time and can boost the tourism industry because it increases the amount of outdoor activities. Over 70 countries use Daylight Saving Time, affecting over 1 Billion people on our planet! Daylight Saving Time was first introduced to the world by Benjamin Franklin back in 1784. But the nowadays popular DST was proposed in 1895 when an entomologist from New Zealand, George Vernon Hudson, presented a proposal for a two-hour daylight saving shift to the Wellington Philosophical Society.
In USA it starts at the second weekend of March, in Europe at the last weekend of March, and it's better this way, we all need to set up for spring, as nature needs it as sunflowers , as everything in this life, needs a little help to proceed better. You might think,that you can sleep less, but it's just a matter of few days and you will get used to it. By the way it's priceless to wake up early, getting out at seven am and see the nature bright, saying good morning with a warm touch of sun...The only difference is in the southern hemisphere, where the changes are the opposite, with DST beginning in October and ending in March or April.
