It seems a bit early inÂ the year to start daylight savings.Â Since the rest of theÂ country is doing it, I guess I have no choice.
I can remember when it use to start at the end of April. That makes a bit Â more sense to me. No one asked me anyway.
No matter when it starts, it also messes with my internal clock.Â I like having the longer daylight hours, but it takes weeks for my bodyÂ to adjust.Â
IÂ was curious to the history of daylight savings time, so I just had to search to find the answer. It seams that people have been doing it for one reason or another for centuries.Â Â According to Wikipedia, even Benjamin Franklin knew the advantage to rising early and using the daylight hours Â to save on candles.
While, we don’t all use candles now, it does make for a nice long light filled day. That, we can all be happy about.
I still wish they would stop playing with time, and just stick to one. It would make my body happy.
