Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the deliberate observance of setting the clocks one hour ahead of the standard time for the duration of the summer months and changing clocks time back again in the fall. Its intention is to make the most use of natural daylight. Daylight saving inception was triggered by war and energy crisis. This idea was first proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 in order to consume more light and conserve energy.
According to Franklin people enjoyed extra hours spent in the daylight rather than using their lights at home. Over the centuries it has been the hot topic of discussion on whether the daylight saving is actually really successful in saving energy or not. Canada was the first country to implement DSU in 1908, and this was followed by Germany in May 1916 during World War I with the aim of conserving fuels. These processes soon spread like a wildfire and by 1918 almost whole Europe and the majority of the states in United Stares of America were using this method. However in some states of America peasants were not happy with the change as it had deducted their one hour of the morning light so consequently this process was deactivated during the World War II and only a few selected numbers of states continued to follow the change till the end of the war. In 1966, the rule of Uniform Time Act of 1966 was released setting the standard start and stop time; however, the states were given full freedom of participation. At present time only to states of America is an exception which does not follow daylight saving which includes Arizona and Hawaii.
