Losing sleep over losing an hour of sleep?



Just a reminder for you in the United States and other places that observe Daylight Savings - tonight is the time that we proverbially spring ahead. I am a big fan of DST. I love having an extra hour of daylight in the evening.

The idea of daylight saving time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 but some think it was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson. It was first implemented by Germany and Austria-Hungary in 1916. The US began implementing it in the 1940s.

How about you? Are you a fan of this practice or will you lose sleep over losing an hour of sleep tonight?

  1. I wish the time would stay on DST all year long. I love the extra hour of light too!

  2. I lose no sleep over it, but I still think the idea that we can "save daylight" by tinkering with the setting on the clock is silly. ;-)
