Don’t forget: Clocks spring forward this weekend
With clocks going forward on Sunday, 27 March, meaning we lose an hour in bed and wake up feeling a little sleepier than usual. On the plus side, we’ll relish in the longer daylight hours and have an excuse for arriving late all day. everyone will lose an hour of sleep – but it’ll stay lighter until much later.
What is daylight saving time?
Daylight saving time (what we call British Summer Time) is the practice of moving the clocks forward one hour from Standard Time during the summer months, and changing them back again in the autumn. The general idea is that this allows us all to make better use of natural daylight.
Why do we change the clocks?
The idea had been around for hundreds of years but it wasn’t until the late 18th century that it became globally recognised. The New Zealand astronomer George Hudson first suggested the idea of daylight savings in 1895. But it wasn’t until 1916 when the Summer Time Act was brought in by the British government. However, Germany is commonly accepted as the first country to implement Daylight Saving Time, but Thunder Bay in Ontario, Canada had implemented it in 1908.
