If you haven't yet seen it, shame on you.
Personally, I prefer Daylight Savings Time to whatever the previous time is called (Standard Time, is it?); I enjoy the extra daylight in the evening and really see no point at all in ever changing the clock in the Fall. Who really likes darkness at 4:00 p.m. in the Winter months?
Even so, the name of this new time setting is, frankly, baffling. As a different friend said yesterday on Facebook: "only the government could steal something from you and call it 'savings.'"
There are many supposed reasons behind the changing of our clocks, none of which have ever made a great deal of sense to me. As it turns out, most of the reasons are mostly a scam (this article offers a bit more information).
