*It’s that time of the year again. We’re talking about Daylight Saving Time/DST. It starts tonight/tomorrow morning at 2am local time. That’s when you reset your clocks/time pieces AHEAD by one hour. (Or as some say, “spring ahead” one hour.) by the way, your computer/tablet/mobile/smart phone will not need to be changed manually by you as it will happen automatically.
But you may be wondering what the heck is DST all about? Where did it come from and why is it need? Well, there’s an interesting story from iDigitalTimes that breaks it all down for you:
When is Daylight Saving Time? When does Daylight Saving Time 2015 start in the USA? What time should I switch back my clocks? Do I get an extra hour or lose one? Why do we even observe the time change? Daylight Savings Time, also known in some countries as Summer Time, is largely an American custom, though some other countries such as England (UK), and Germany observe it as well.
The spring Daylight Saving Time change in the United States begins on the 2nd Sunday in March. This year, that date is Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 2 am. Therefore, Americans in most of the 50 states should prepare spring forward, setting their clocks forward one hour at 2 am on Sunday, March 8, 2015
