Every March, Americans spring their clocks forward one hour, marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST). This year it begins on March 11 at 2 AM. A day I was hoping to stay out late and party to celebrate my birthday, but because I lose an hour I don’t see the point.
Anyway, DST has nothing to do with nature, and everything to do with the government. The original idea behind DST was to reduce the amount of fuel being used by Americans and increase the amount available to the military fighting a World War.
Over the years I’ve come to loathe the time change. While my list is much longer (and much less funny) than what I’m presenting you, these are my top 7 reasons why I hate Daylight Saving Time.
