Yes, it’s that time of year, set your clocks back tonight! Change the batteries in smoke alarms and enjoy your extra hour of sleep! Except for Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa, they do not observe Daylight Savings Time.
So, why do we observe DST?
Benjamin Franklin first proposed the idea in 1784, according to TimeandDate.com and it has since evolved as a way to make better use of the daylight in the evenings, save energy and even boost tourism.
