Fall Back!

Remember to set your clocks back one hour when you go to bed Saturday night! Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 am Sunday, November 2.

Although DST has only been used for about 100 years, the idea was conceived many years before. Ancient civilizations are known to have engaged in a practice similar to modern DST where they would adjust their daily schedules to the Sun's schedule. For example, the Roman water clocks used different scales for different months of the Year.

American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin is often credited with being the inventor of DST, even though it was never put into practice in his lifetime. In his 1784 essay "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light" he proposed the idea, although a little jokingly, to economize the use of candles by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning, making use of the natural morning light instead.

Modern DST was not proposed until 1895 when an entomologist from New Zealand, George Vernon Hudson, presented a proposal for a two-hour daylight saving shift. However, Germany was the first country to implement DST on April 30, 1916 when the clocks were set forward at 11:00 pm.
