Spring Forward - Daylight Saving Time

Make sure to set your clocks this weekend. It's time to spring forward as daylight saving time begins on Sunday. The goal of daylight saving is exactly as it sounds... we advance our clocks by one hour to extend the light during the summer.

Germany was the first country to enact daylight saving time in 1916, and the United States followed shortly after in 1918, as a wartime measure.
