Daylight savings time is, forward

Spring Forward, Fall Back...Daylight Savings Time comes around twice a year - in the Spring we lose an hour and in the Fall it comes back. Most folks probably don't give it alot of thought-we change our clocks, grouse about losing an hour, cheer when we get it back and move on with our lives. We might even forget and show up late/early to work or church. Thankfully our computers and cell phones are smarter than us and change automatically. How would you like to be the official giant clock changer?

Have you ever stopped to wonder what it is all about though? Most people in the US participate in this ritual, how about the rest of the world? Why does Arizona not participate? Who started this and why? Follow the clouds at this link to learn all about DST:

  1. Just to add my two cents (which are not unique whatsoever) daylight savings time blows. Fall back? No problem. Spring ahead? No way.
