Spring is just around the corner!  It has to be - as we get ready to begin Daylight Saving Time on Sunday morning at 2AM.  That's when we'll "spring forward" - effectively losing an hour in the process.

The earliest notion of shifting clocks to better-match daylight hours occurred in 1895.  Since then, nations all around the world have more-or-less adopted the process.

In the United States, we finally standardized the process in 1966.  Since then, the time period has evolved - with the most-recent revision happening in 2007 when Daylight Saving Time was expanded by four weeks.

Perhaps the most important thing to remember about Daylight Saving Time is that the term is "singular" in nature, not plural.  In other words, Daylight SavingS Time is incorrect;  We save one one time, not many.
