Yes gang, that’s right. Today, April 3rd, 2005, is the day to set your clocks ahead 1 hour. Unless you are in Hawaii, Arizona or the eastern most portion of Indiana. All the rest of you better get on it!
And, instead of complaing about Ben Franklin and time change lag, I present to you this:
History of Daylight Saving Time
Daylight Saving Time begins for most of the United States at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April. Time reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.
In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1 am Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It starts the last Sunday in March, and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.
So, if you have nothing better to do for a few minutes on this glorious Sunday, check it out.
Oh yea, and set your clocks! Otherwise you’re gonna be an hour early to work and everyone will point and laugh.
