Clock Change: Is Daylight Saving Time Still in Effect?

Currently, the practice of daylight saving time is still in effect. Therefore, on the last Sunday of March, specifically on March 31st, the clock will change.

What Does Daylight Saving Time Entail?

Daylight saving time involves moving the clock forward by one hour, so that 3:00 a.m. becomes 4:00 a.m. Consequently, the last Sunday of March will consist of only 23 hours.

Impact on Folk Wisdom: Do We Sleep “Less”?

In colloquial terms, this change means that we will “sleep less.”

Connection with the Spring Equinox: Day Equals Night

Daylight saving time coincides with a few days after the spring equinox, which occurs on March 20th, when day and night are of equal length.

Purpose of Introducing Daylight Saving Time: Benefits for Agriculture and Beyond

The introduction of daylight saving time aimed to increase the number of hours during which people benefit from natural light, particularly advantageous for those working in agriculture.
