  • The correct name is Daylight Saving Time, not “Savings.”

  • In 2007, the start of daylight saving time changed from the first Sunday in April to the second Sunday in March (March 8, 2009, this year) and the end from the last Sunday in October to the first Sunday in November.

  • The reason it was changed in 2007 was to save energy (keeping people outside longer and indoor lights off). It is supposed to save 300,000 barrels of oil a year.

  • Hawaii and most of Arizona don’t observe Daylight Saving Time.

  • Many devices are still programmed to automatically change the time on the old dates requiring four manual time changes a year (two when automatically changed on the wrong dates and two more times on the right dates).

  • In 2007 many computers had not been updated to accommodate the new dates. By now, most systems should change on the right dates (but some may not).

  • The change takes place at 2:00 AM when most people are asleep and few trains are running. Amtrak trains that are running at 2:00 AM stop for an hour.

  • The candy industry has lobbied for decades to extend DST through Halloween. Trick-or-treaters are also safer from traffic during daylight.

  • Farmers are some of the biggest critics of DST claiming it disrupts cows’ milking schedules.

  • An article Retrevo published on DST.
