Daylight Saving Time


The concept of daylight saving was the brainchild of George Hudson in 1895. It was not for another two decades that DST would be used. The German Empire and Austria-Hungary organized the first nationwide implementation of DST on April 30,1916. Around the equator, daylight saving is not widely observed. This is due to the fact that the sunrise does not vary enough to justify its use. For example, Brazil does not observe DST, but the southernmost part does. In other major countries, such as Asia and Africa, it is generally not observed.

Just don’t forget to forward your clocks!
