News from Fort Collins Northern Colorado The FoCoHomes Group: Why do I have to Spring Forward or Time for Daylight Saving Time

Why do I have to Spring Forward or Time for Daylight Saving Time

It's that time of year again when we all start wondering...why, why, why? Do we really need to run around our homes, offices and cars and move all of our clocks forward by ONE HOUR?

Luckily technology has eliminated some of the pain by automatically doing it for us, but wait...

what happens to the big clock on the wall? How many of us have forgotten to move it forward and then become late for that all important listing appointment? Not us! We like to think of the day before as a day to begin Spring Cleaning and the start of new beginnings!

The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time is to make better use of daylight. Read more at About Daylight Saving Time.

Daylight Saving Time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in more at History of Daylight Saving Time. Just remember to enjoy that extra sun light in the evening.

I would definitely be in favor of no daylight savings time change!   Most people have troubles adjusting to this one hour change!

I love it that most of our digital items already to this time change for us. I like the fall back when I can get an extra hour of sleep. I need it.
