Ok, if you have a digital clock set for this daylight savings time day, and set your alarm clock, chances are you’re pissed off. The time clock was moved one full hour forward this morning, robbing you of that extra sleep time your body got used to. Wake up.
Now if you’re keeping score, Daylight Saving Time in the United States began today, Sunday, March 11, 2012, 2 am, and ends Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 2 am.
Important In An Internet Age?
The rationale for Daylight Savings Time is entirely based on the increasingly old idea of needing light to go to work or for entertainment. But in an Internet-based age, where more people have work hours that vary with respect to personal time, it’s hard to see if the tradition is as necessary as it once was.
But even with that idea, it’s a powerful tradition, the idea that we can give a little more sunlight for the morning in the fall (where mornings are darkest), then change back in the summer.
