Daylight Saving Time Start in United States in 2022

Daylight saving time (DST) is a practice to set clocks forward by one hour from standard time in the spring and set clocks back by one hour in autumn in order to return to standard time. This is done in order to extend daylight hours.

In the US, the Daylight saving time (DST) starts on the second Sunday in March every year. On this day, Americans will forward their clocks by an hour hence there will be one 23-hour day on the second Sunday in March in early spring. In this way, evenings will have more daylight and mornings will have less.

This idea of aligning waking hours to daylight hours, in order to preserve candle use and save money, was first proposed in 1784 by American scientist and inventor Benjamin Franklin. In 1907, British resident William Willett suggested the idea of Daylight saving time (DST) as a way to save energy but it was not adopted. However, in 1908 Port Arthur, Ontario and Canada started using DST. From the year 1970 onwards, many countries have started using DST at various times.

DST is not observed near the Equator, where sunrise and sunset times do not vary much.
