Spring Forward – Fall Back

Your reminder if you are reading this blog.  fall back

 

First Daylight Saving Time law 1918
On March 19, 1918, “An Act to preserve daylight and provide standard time for the United States” was enacted. It both established standard time zones and set summer DST to begin on March 31, 1918. Daylight Saving Time was observed for seven months in 1918 and 1919.

 

There has always been controversy over the use of daylight savings time.  It has changed the birth date of newborns, it has caused numerous appointments to be missed, and even has been noted to cause stress in individuals by throwing them off by an hour.  Even pets are affected, since they are usually on a regular feeding and walking schedule.
