When Does The Time Change?

‘When does the time change’ is a rather ambiguous statement. From wanting to pause time to the different time zones where the clocks function differently, it covers a whole range of things. However, it is the rotation and revolution cycle of planet Earth, which acts as the sole reason why sunlight does not cover an equal surface area on the globe.

Daylight saving time is one of the most common phenomena in the USA when clocks are moved forward by an hour. As a result, the bright shiny morning slips into a dark mode and the evenings gain sufficient light to save energy.

Daylight Saving Time occurs in the Europe, parts of the Middle East and many US states and territories except Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Island. Earlier Utah also featured in the list; However, it has recently sparked debates of reconsidering its participation in the energy saving process and fueled rumors about backing out its name from the list of cities that adhere to the practice.

The year 2017 marks the 101st anniversary of daylight saving time and around 100 years of variously associated delusions that DST gave rise to. The whole idea behind daylight saving time originated from Benjamin Franklin; a renowned scientist who spent 9 years as American ambassador to France.
