Daylight saving time begins again at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 12, so it will be time to move clocks forward one hour.
For those who may not know the backstory on the time-changing occurrence, we’ve gathered some notable facts about daylight saving time:
The tradition started with bug hunting
In 1895, George Hudson, New Zealand entomologist, thought up the modern concept of daylight saving time. He proposed a two-hour time shift, so he'd have more after-work hours of sunshine to go bug hunting in the summer, according to National Geographic. He presented his idea to the Wellington Philosophical Society, but it didn't have any legs until British builder William Willett suggested a similar concept in 1905. His idea would be presented to the British Parliament in 1909. Still, that practice would not officially become standard in the United Kingdom until 1916.
