Aaryanna Posted April 2, 2006 Share Posted April 2, 2006 [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]For those of you who live where Daylight Saving?s Time is honored, tonight or tomorrow sometime is when we change our clocks so that the time is one hour ahead of what it is now. A process that can be quite time consuming if you have a lot of clocks that need to be manually switched. Originally daylight savings time was started to save energy. Supposedly by having more daylight hour?s people would use less electricity for lights and it would reduce energy consumption. Which in turn would reduce consumption of oil, natural gas and coal. Though in reality it?s only a trick since you can?t increase the amount of daylight time. It just changes when you go to school so that you have more time after both school and work to do things when nature is providing the light for you. Every year there is a big debate as to whether or not we should either do away with daylight savings time or make it permanent. And the other debate is that next year Congress had approved extending daylight savings time by two months so that it will run from the first Sunday in March to the last weekend in November. So what do all of you think? Personally I think constantly changing the clocks is kind of unnecessary. It doesn?t change the amount of daylight only our perception of when we are awake for those hours of daylight. So I think we should either get rid of it altogether or make Daylight Savings Time permanent. Personally I like the idea of it being permanent since I like long sunny days, even if part of that day is an illusion to make me think it?s longer. That and I hate it when we change back in the fall since it makes it seem like the darkness started taking over. ^_~[/COLOR] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
