Fun Fact: When it’s not Daylight Saving Time, it’s Standard Time (or normal time). Among our pet peeves – having to change the clock at all!

Wikipedia: Daylight saving time (abbreviated DST) is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times.

Hashtag: #DaylightSaving

Places that opt out of time change in the USA are Arizona, Hawai’i and the Navajo Nation.
