Daylight saving time

Daylight saving time

Makers (In the USA and most of Canada) don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour. Here’s a great article on NPR that has some history and the changes in 2007 for daylight savings time… Fun fact – “Benjamin Franklin is credited with first proposing the idea of Daylight Saving Time in 1784. He hoped to save on candles.”Link.
