Did you remember to spring ahead?

It’s always a good sign of spring when we get to move our clocks ahead one hour to enjoy more daylight hours.

Did you remember to set yours ahead – either last night or this morning?

 

 

 

I know not everyone has to do this, and it can be a matter of heated discussion as many don’t see the need of it anymore, feeling it is a system that has outlived its usefulness. It was put into place 100 years ago in Germany during WWI, but they weren’t the first to do it.

You can read about it HERE.

From that article it would seem daylight saving time began here in Canada, but if you read all the way to the end you’ll see it was actually in effect in some way thousands of years before in the Roman empire.

Fascinating.

How do YOU feel about Daylight Saving Time?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
