“Daylight Saving Time” Cause History And (Spring Forward-Fall Back) Time Table Given

“daylight-saving-time”-cause-history-and-spring-forward-fall-back-time-table-givenDaylight Saving Time was instituted in the United States during World War I in order to save energy for war production by taking advantage of the later hours of daylight between April and October.

During World War II the federal government again required the states to observe the time change. Between the wars and after World War II, states and communities chose whether or not to observe Daylight Saving Time. In 1966, Congress passed the Uniform Time Act, which standardized the length of Daylight Saving Time.
Kyrgyzstan and Iceland are the only countries that observe year-round Daylight Saving Time.
