It is that time of year once again. On March 13th at 2:00 AM, we will be moving our clocks ahead one hour for daylight savings.
Here are some reactions towards the time change.
everyone in the car is arguing about daylight savings time but little do they know time is just a construct it doesn't really exist— danielle (@danielleciamp) February 22, 2016
Daylight savings time was first used in Canada in 1908. It is now used in over 70 countries across the world. The whole purpose of daylight savings is to conserve energy. Due to more natural lighting, less artificial energy is needed to light the evening hours. So, in reality, daylight savings is actually saving you some money.
What if instead of "springing forward" an hour for daylight savings we just skipped Monday every week?— Jordan Barnes (@Jordancoppock7) February 22, 2016

Some Americans are so passionate about daylight savings it has become a political issue.
I'll vote for any Presidential candidate, even Donald Trump, who promises to get rid of stupid, antiquated Daylight Savings Time.— ... (@chi_geek) November 1, 2015
And, lastly, daylight savings really marks to beginning of the start of spring and summer.
