Daylight Saving Time – Move one hour ahead

daylight-saving-timeIt’s Daylight saving time once again!

DST (or summertime as it is called in many countries) is the convention of advancing clocks so that the afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.

Between March–April through September–November, it is summer in the northern hemisphere, where many countries may observe DST; while in the southern hemisphere it is winter. During the rest of the year the opposite is true: it is winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern.

Benjamin Franklin first suggested the idea of daylight saving time in 1784 but wasn’t until the railroads standardized timetables with it that it became the ubiquitous global tradition many countries practice today.

Want to know how does the transition to DST start? What time is the official time / correct time? Then you should go to the world clock and see if your city or country is practicing daylight saving this year.
