Don’t miss a minute of it – be sure to set your clocks AHEAD one hour. Daylight savings time officially began at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 12, 2017.
These fun facts make it easy to remember:
- Ben Franklin concocted the idea in 1784 to conserve lamp oil.
- Violent crimes decline by up to 13 percent during DST.
- Most research stations at the South Pole observe DST, even though they are in a period of all daylight.
- DST can reverse the recorded birth order of twins born at 11:55 p.m. and 12:05 a.m.
Thank you for remembering to reset your clocks!
