Why Do We Have Time, That Saves Daylight?

Suppose, a person gets up at 7.00 in the morning and retires to bed at 11.00 at night. He returns home after day work at 6.30 and finishes dinner after 8.00. He strolls outside in the summer to relax, but is getting dark! Not much is left for enjoyment.

Now, we set the clock ahead one hour. This person loves everything at some hour – but now when he, steps out at 8-00, there is still plenty of daylight. An hour of precious daylight is “saved” for him.

This arrangement does not in any way add an hour to the day, as is not possible the number of useful hours has been increased, With daylight, during this season when the sun rises early.

This saving of daylight is popular in cities because it permits the closing of offices, shops, factories, and other establishments at the end of the working day, while the sun is still high. Farmers are not affected as they do their work during sun time. In the morning they can not work before the dew has dried or after it appears in the evening.

Benjamin Franklin thought of saving daylight time during the 18th century when he was living in France. He suggested the idea to the people in Paris but was not adopted.

The laws on saving daylight were passed for the first time during World War I. The fuel for generating electricity was scarce then. It was considered imperative to save on artificial light. The bedtime of many people comes soon with daylight saving. To keep awake until the same hour, the use of artificial lights became necessary.

Germany in the year 1915 was the first to adopt daylight saving time, followed by England in 1916, the United States adopted in 1918. During World War II the United States once again put it in force again on a national basis and this ended with the close of the war
