There's no such thing as "Daylight Savings Time"

Daylight Saving Time goes into effect Sunday at 2 a.m. While residents will lose an hour of sleep when the clocks spring forward they will gain an hour of daylight

Florida's daylight savings time could become the state's permanent time on Sunday as most of the rest of country temporarily leaps forward one hour - if Gov. Rick Scott signs the bill sitting on his desk. In parts of ME, for example, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the sun sets before 4 p.m. - more than an hour earlier than it does in Detroit, at the other end of the Eastern time zone.

DST runs from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. It will end at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4.

First of all we lose an hour of sleep which is more than enough reason to be angry.

"It's going to be more hard for people to wake up", Rodriguez said of the days immediately after Daylight Saving starts. The province, however, adopts Central Standard Time for itself year-round, nullifying daylight saving time.

Never mind that one study showed that our risk of stroke increases 8 percent right after the time changes while another study revealed that our risk of heart attack increases by 25 percent the Monday after spring forward.

Some people seem to like DST; others prefer standard time.

Florida could stay brighter longer each fall and winter under a bill passed by state lawmakers there.

If you are asking, "When does Daylights Savings time start in 2018 in the United States of America?"

So, why do we even change our clocks? People tend to spend more time outside in the evenings during Daylight Saving Time, which reduces the need to use electricity in the home. But it only lasted a few years and between 1945 and 1966, there was no law regarding it so states and municipalities could choose whether or not to observe Daylight Saving. Hawaii, Arizona and several USA territories including Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not observe Daylight Saving Time, according to the NIST. During World War II, President Franklin Roosevelt revived the idea and instituted year-round DST, known as "War Time".
