Why Is There A Need For Daylight Savings?
For some people, they might have no idea why there is something like a daylight saving time and why it is still existent even today. The most common answer from random people in the streets would probably be because of the idea to help the farmers in the past and also because of the first and the 2nd world war that happened. Even with those possible answers from random people, you should know that farmers do not really have that much interest on the daylight saving time. The reason why farmers do not really like the daylight saving time is because in there are some places in certain states that does not observe daylight saving time while in some areas they do. The issue of farmers putting up their crops for sale on the market place early in the morning even before the usual time that they need to do it in order to cater those people who are already there early in the market place because they are observing daylight saving time is something inconvenient for these farmers.
During the very first World War in the United States, people observe the daylight saving time in order to save a lot of fuel, this is possible by reducing the usage of artificial lighting by the people. Even when the first World War came to and end, there were still several places in the states that continued to observe daylight saving time but during the second World War, the daylight saving time was observed only on a national level.
But even up until the present day, there are still several places that are still observing the daylight saving time even after all the World War, what could be the reason behind that?
There now two types of time that is alternately used by the people in the United States, and there is a history behind it that dates back to the year 1966 in the United States, because of the Uniform Time Act. You should still observe that the United States congress even until now is trying to look for other ways on how to change that over time. It was stated in the first act that the daylight saving time will only be observed during the months of the spring and summer seasons, but people were already practicing the use of the daylight saving time all year long during the year of 1973. People were ask to follow the practice of daylight saving time that will start on the month of April at 2 in the morning of the first Sunday and will end on the month of October at 3 in the morning of the last Sunday, this began on the year 1986.
