Spring Forward This Sunday At 2 AM

Last year, California lawmakers narrowly defeated a bill that would have gotten rid of the tradition known as Daylight Saving Time (DST), but the lawmaker who wrote that bill is taking another swing at the idea this year.

Daylight Saving Time began during the First World War in Germany, and then Great Britain, to save on energy costs, and eventually came into widespread use in North America, where it has remained controversial in some regions.

Daylight Saving Time was tested in Canada numerous times before 1918.

Compared to the Monday before the time switch, Google users searched for 3 percent more entertainment-related websites the Monday following the change. When you set your clock forward, consider making a life-saving change in your household - change and test the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors - and remind your friends, family and neighbors to do the same.

Daylight Saving Time affects over a billion people worldwide every year. We will "spring ahead" by turning our clocks forward to ensure that for the next eight months, there is additional light at the end of the day.

Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands don't observe Daylight Saving Time.

Standard Time will soon give way to Daylight Saving Time.

In NJ, like the majority of the states, Day Light Saving time will end on November 5. Daylight Saving Time exists to, essentially, do just what it sounds like it does: allow people to take advantage of as many daylight hours as possible. The extension means Daylight Saving Time exists for eight months, while standard time is 4-months long. The measure received push back on sun lovers and businesses such as golf course owners and landscapers that relied on the extra hour of sunlight.

DST is Singular Not PluralBy the way, it's "daylight saving time", not "daylight savings time".
