Daylight Saving Time (DST)


Recommended Posts

My region never had daylight saving, but my country as a whole got rid of it this year.

That's cool. I'd be interested in knowing if other areas of the world that currently use DST will also follow suit.

I still don’t understand the point of it lol 

Back in the day, people used Oil Lamps for their lights and, in order to save energy, Ben Franklin (I'm pretty sure) came up with DST so it would get darker later. That way people didn't need their lights on for as long because it would still be light outside at the time where they would usually turn their lights on.

As for why we still have it, IDK :imstupid:

It depends. Our excuse here was that it delayed the energy peak on the system (therefore preventing power outages) and people could also save some energy as they wouldn't have lights on for as long or whatever but as time went on the overall activity a.k.a energy consumption changed and apparently doing DST became useless so we got rid of it this year
