What is Daylight Savings Time?

Daylight savings time is also known as summer time in countries such as the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe. During daylight savings time, the clock is advanced so that evenings have more daylight while mornings have less daylight. As its name states, daylight savings time is done during summer. Clocks are usually advanced one hour ahead at the start of spring. Once autumn rolls around, they are adjusted one hour backward.

Daylight savings time was mentioned by Benjamin Franklin as early as 1784. Yet the concept of daylight savings time as we know it was initially proposed by George Vernon Hudson in 1895. It was first utilized during the First World War.

Daylight savings time has been a boon to shops, sports and other activities that make use of the sun after a day’s work is done. But it may have the opposite effect on evening entertainment and other forms of employment that are determined by the sun. Whether or not daylight savings time has an effect to health and crime has yet to be determined.

One main objective of daylight savings time was to lower the use of incandescent lighting during the evening. However, in modern times, heating and cooling have followed different patterns. Comprehensive research on the effect of daylight savings time on energy use has yet to be conducted.
