What time is Daylight Savings 2018?

The biannual clock-tinkering ritual began in Europe two years earlier, and eventually made its way across the pond as a way to save coal and energy during World War I.

Twice a year, Americans set their clocks in one direction or the other. Managing Editor Leeanna Ellis and Assistant Editor Teresa Hoffman debate.

The clocks go forward on the last Sunday in March, which this year is the 25th. A Canadian study, published 20 years ago, cited 24,318 sleep-related deaths and 2,474,430 disabling accidents at a cost of $56 billion in 1998 alone. Or, to pay back sleep debt, take measures to tack on an extra hour or two of sleep in the next couple days.

According to the Uniform Time Act of 1966, as amended, states may exempt themselves from observing Daylight Saving Time by State law. "That's a big problem, because you're waking up at a time when the circadian system is not yet promoting alertness". Or, changing it so it stays all year round. There's speculation the tourist economy in Florida would benefit from longer, sunny days under permanent DST. The dates are the last Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October. Daylight saving time was a success for the retail industry.

And there are arguments on the idea that daylight-saving time reduces electricity usage and promotes energy efficiency.


A quality review specialist for a local bank, Owens says she enjoys the long summer nights and being able to go for a walk in the daylight after work, supper and household chores. The New England proposal hopes to relieve ME from its darkest winter days. And on November 4, we will move the clocks back one hour, returning to standard time. Is this all really necessary?

By the way, clocks change at 2 a.m. Sunday for most of the country except Hawaii and Arizona, which means one less hour of sleep Saturday night, but a much brighter Sunday evening. It's especially depressing as fall turns into winter. If that wasn't bad enough, here are four OTHER ways it might affect you.

Based exclusively on the findings from our two studies, along with a study showing that the time change predicts a 5 percent increased incidence of heart attacks, economists estimate that the annual spring time change costs the American economy US$434 million each year. I'm indifferent, but the best option would be to pick one and stick to it. We're with him on no more twice-yearly time changes but less persuaded that New Mexico should leave the Mountain time zone. It passed 103-11 in the House.

In 1918 President Woodrow Wilson signed into law a "Fast Time" bill, but it was repealed a few months later. That's right, it is time for the annual rite of "spring forward".

At least portions of some 70 countries observe some form of daylight saving time, but when they start and end varies. In the experiment we kept half of our research participants awake throughout the night and allowed the other half to get a full night of sleep. So, who's ready to join Florida in adopting a Sunshine Protection Act?
