Here Are Some Things You Need To Know About Daylight Saving Time

Apr 1, 2015
Daylight saving time is an attempt to make the best use of the hours of light in each day. The closer to the poles, the more pronounced the shortening and the lengthening of each day is as the year progresses. Many countries in the Northern Hemisphere practice daylight saving. It is usually put in place somewhere between March and April and lasts until sometime between September and November. Then, standard time will be in effect from November (or so) until March (or April).

The Southern Hemisphere also has countries that practice daylight saving, but their impacted hours are the opposite. Daylight saving is practiced November through March or April and standard time is in effect for the rest of the year.
