E-T Staff Report
With the cool weather comes a change in time.
If you forget to set your clocks back an hour Saturday night, you might be early to work or church Sunday morning.
At 2 a.m. Sunday, the time will revert back to standard daylight time.
Though most attribute the idea of daylight savings time to Benjamin Franklin, it was first proposed by George Hudson, a New Zealand entomologist, in 1898.
The observance and practice of daylight savings time began in the United States in 1918.
DST has changed in recent years though. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 moved the date that Americans revert to standard daylight time from the last Sunday in October to the first Sunday in November.
Daylight savings time is observed by all states except Arizona and Hawaii.
