Daylight Savings Time ends this Sunday on November 4th at 2am, which means it’s time to set the clock back an hour. During the time change, Americans in participating states lose an hour in the spring and gain an hour in the fall. The initial purpose of daylight saving time is to make better use of daylight.

American standardized time was originally established with the use of railroads in order to allow for effective communication for travel and transportation. The system created by the railroad industry created time zones with standardized times. Benjamin Franklin first conceived the idea of changing the times to conserve light in 1784, but the concept was not officially acted upon until centuries later. In 1918, The Standard Time Act was passed, establishing time zones and daylight saving. Most areas in North America, Europe, and some countries in South America currently observe daylight saving time to conserve daylight and energy.

The shifting of daylight savings time back to standardized time results in the repetition of an hour, creating the use of more sunlight in the morning. “I’m excited to be able to get what will feel like an extra hour of sleep,” comments Zowie Geng. However, regardless of the morning light, the sun will set earlier in the evening. Tray Davis believes that the time change is negatively impacting his lifestyle by remarking, “The sun will be setting two hours after we get out of school. That makes it feel like there’s not enough time to get things done.”
