What is the history of daylight saving time?
The concept dates back over a century when English architect William Willett proposed the idea of changing clocks in 1907 in The Waste of Daylight. The suggestion to use daylight more effectively can be attributed to Benjamin Franklin. During a visit to Paris in 1784, he wrote a letter to the editors of the Journal de Paris calling for a tax on every Parisian whose windows were closed after sunrise to “encourage the economy of using the sun at place of candles, ”according to Michael Downing, author of Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time.
Which states do not observe daylight saving time?
Hawaii and most of Arizona do not observe daylight saving time. The time change is also not observed in the US territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa and the US Virgin Islands.
Five states (Alabama, Georgia, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Montana) have enacted legislation to make daylight saving time permanent. These changes, however, require federal approval. Others also have bills pending in state legislatures.
Two provinces in Canada – Saskatchewan and the Yukon have adopted permanent daylight saving time.
About 70 countries observe daylight saving time. Most of North America, Europe, and parts of South America and New Zealand adhere to it, unlike China, Japan, India, and most countries. .
It starts on different dates elsewhere. In Australia, for example, daylight saving time started on October 3.
