Daylight Savings Time is Sunday March 8th.  Don't forget to set your clocks one hour ahead. 

 The idea of daylight savings was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784.   The U.S. began using Daylight Savings Time in WW I to conserve fuel.  Today, many people intensely dislike Daylight Savings Time because of the inconvenience of changing their clocks and adjusting to a new sleep schedule.  For others though, the extra daylight hours allow time for family after work and an extended driving period for those who have difficulty seeing after dark.  For more information regarding Daylight Savings Time and a look at some historical facts on this matter, click Daylight Savings Time.
