Are we now in Daylight Saving Time?
In "Daylight Saving Time," "Daylight Saving" is being used as an adjective - as in time that is saving daylight. "Daylight Savings" would be a noun itself, and makes little se…nse applied as an adjective in this context. Many people use the word savings, not knowing the correct way to say it. Edit; "Daylight Saving" time.
It is called Standard Time.
Benjamin Franklin suggested it to "save on tallow and wax" (candles).
When you turn your clock forward an hour in Summer it's saving time because when it is 12 midnight, it is actually eleven, so it is SAVING TIME because you rise earlier and ge…t to work earlier. Daylight Saving time is to the advantage of employers who try to persuade their workers that a fresh hour devoted to their job in the morning, has the same value as weary hour expended wrung out like a dirty dish rag in the afternoon; ... it is to the advantage of nine-to-five workers in that they arrive home while there's still plenty of daylight time to be out of doors,... although, to be honest, some may prefer the extra hour in the morning for other pursuits. Especially those who start work at 6 or 7 am. Daylight saving is not geared towards office workers, it is slanted towards those who work out of doors and who can put the extra daylight towards achieving greater production such as during war-time. Farmers don't need it because they have always been up at the crack of dawn.
Daylight Saving Time was introduced before electricity was in use. It's primary implementation was to save candles by shifting people's waking hours. There is no actual affect… on the amount of time that passes. It is simply a practical shift in the numbers that we assign to the hours of the day. Really, it 'shifts' our experience of daylight, it doesn't 'save' it. But wouldn't it be strange if we called it Daylight Shifting Time?
Daylight savings time started at 2:00 AM Sunday morning. Move the clock hand forward one hour or read the instructions for your digital clock to see how to change the time. Re…member this phrase, "Spring ahead, fall back".

Benjamin Franklin first suggested Daylight Saving Time in 1784, but modern DST was not proposed until 1895 when an entomologist from New Zealand, George Vernon Hudson, present…ed a proposal for a two-hour daylight saving shift to the Wellington Philosophical Society. The conception of DST was mainly credited to an English builder, William Willett in 1905, when he presented the idea to advance the clock during the summer months. His proposal was published two years later and introduced to the House of Commons in February 1908. The first Daylight Saving Bill was examined by a select committee but was never made into a law. It wasn't until World War I, in 1916, that DST was adopted and implemented by several countries in Europe who initially rejected the idea.
Daylight savings time is determined by different governing bodies in different countries.
By advancing the clock one hour, the sun appears to set later in the evening. Of course, it also rises one hour later in the morning. The daylight "saved" in the morning is us…ed in the evening. Supposedly, this saves energy, because people will not have to light candles, turn on electricity, or use other forms of illumination at night, or at least not as soon in the evening as otherwise. If this was ever true, it is insignificant today, because of the round-the-clock use of air conditioning and other forms of energy.
