I feel that the beginning days of autumn seem extra long until we reach the time of the year when we return clocks back to "standard time."
The earliest proposals for "Daylight Saving Time" met with resistance. In 1784, Benjamin Franklin wrote the first known proposal to "save" daylight in his "An Economical Project" book. It wasn't until 1915 when Germany implemented DST. In 1916, England introduced "British Summer Time." The United States followed suit in 1918; however, DST only lasted until 1920. Interest waned because farmers did not see the purpose. After all, cows and chickens don't pay attention to the clock. The idea of "saving daytime" reemerged again with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Some areas of the world adhere to DST and other areas do not. In 2021, many states wrote legislation to abolish the practice of DST. Time will tell what happens with that legislation.
Regardless of the future paradigms, as we near the end of October, I am looking forward to November 7th when I get my hour back! I have missed it. (LOL)
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME 2021: WHEN DOES THE TIME CHANGE?
Pearls take time to form; likewise, our words should be chosen carefully and with thought.
