Daylight savings time isn’t one of those things that you think too often about. It just sort of happens twice a year. Well, not always. And that is why we have this list! It is to fill you in on some secrets about daylight savings time that you may not have known. Well, they aren’t really secrets but they are certainly interesting! To start with, did you know that not every country observes daylight savings time? Well, to bring it closer to home (most of you probably live in the United States), there are some states that don’t observe daylight savings time! Neither Arizona nor Hawaii turn their clocks back. Why? Because federal law never required states to do so. It only outlined and specified how and when they should change their clocks if they should choose to do that. As we said before, there are also many countries that don’t observe daylight savings time. Usually these countries are near the equator, which makes sense because they don’t really have a need to conserve daylight. Going a little further back, did you know that daylight savings time was initially implemented during the World Wars to save energy? These are 25 little known things about daylight savings time!
