Why Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday

The beginning of daylight saving time means more than just losing an hour of sleep for you Sunday morning.

Clocks will spring ahead an hour tonight as Daylight Saving Time begins, but other than adjusting your clocks you should also take this possibly life-saving action.

It will be one hour closer to when your kids go back to school after March Break. Some devices have a button that can turn daylight saving time on or off.

Payday is one hour closer.

BC Hydro is working a full study including further research and analysis on Daylight Saving Time this fall, which will delve deeper into whether the practice actually saves electricity in B.C.

And if all else fails - remember, spring is one hour closer! Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands all decline for the same reason as Hawaii: The closer you are to the equator, the less seasons impact the length of your day.

It was also viewed as a way to get more people out doing things (namely spending money) during the week. That's good. Then again, researchers at the University of Alabama Birmingham reported in 2012 that the spring adjustment led to a 10% increase in heart attack risk.

But the state legislature must first pass a bill which would officially end the time change in California, and that bill must pass by a two-thirds margin.

With the First World War raging, the United Kingdom reasoned that nobody was going to get any sleep with all that shelling going on, so they might as well get up and go to work an hour early.
