Why do we have daylight savings time?



  1. 0 Votes

    Daylight savings time pushes clocks an hour forward in the summertime so that people can spend more waking hours in the sunlight. The thought behind it is that by pushing clocks ahead the sun will rise one hour later in the morning, when people are most likely sleeping anyway, and transfer that hour to the evening, when people are still out and about. In theory this also helps with energy efficiency since people will need less artificial light if they are awake while the sun is up.
