Welcome to Daylight Savings TimeDaylight Savings Time has officially begun, which means your clock needs to spring forward by one hour, if it has not already.
Daylight Savings Time was invented in 1895 by Astronomer and Entomologist George Vernon Hudson, in New Zealand. Hudson allegedly preferred more sunlight hours, that way he could practice favorite hobby, bug collecting, later in the evening. He amassed one of the largest bug collections of all time, which is still on display at a New Zealand Museum.
Daylight Savings Time is observed in most of the United States, except for a section of Arizona, most of Mexico, parts of South America, Australia, and Africa, and in most of Europe.
