    First observed in 1918. Most areas of the United States currently observe daylight saving time, with the exceptions being the states of Arizona and Hawaii along with the territories of Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands.From 1987 to 2006, daylight saving time in the United States began on the first Sunday of April and ended on the last Sunday of October. The time was adjusted at 2:00 AM (0200) local time (as it still is done now).


    Since 2007, daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November, with all time changes taking place at 2:00 AM (0200) local time. In 2011, daylight saving time began on March 13 and ended on November 6; in 2012, it will begin on March 11 and end on November 4.

    I remember in the 60s in the UK they stopped it for a trial period,had to return to normal,us kids in Scotland couldn,t see when we were going to school, and too many traffic accidents,and yet they are discussing it again.

    What I want to know is how do you save daylight, do you put it in a sealed black box, do you put it in the fridge, just where do you save it?

    Yes dead set, how do you save daylight?
    I tried once but when I opened the box at night so I could see it better it had disappeared, must have been a tiny hole in the box.

    By some idiot.
