It’s time to “Spring Forward” with the arrival of Daylight Saving Time this Sunday. Remember to set your clocks one hour ahead before you go to bed the Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time is the practice of setting the clocks one hour ahead of standard time to make use of more sunlight in the spring, summer, and fall evenings. Germany and Austria were the first countries to use Daylight Saving Time in 1916.
