What do you think would happen if the world went on strike and protested for the discontinue of daylight savings? What if certain countries only did?

I could live without it. Its more of a nuisance to me than anything. I love it during the winter. Dark at 5 pm? Heck yes. Spring? I don't like it.
Can someone explain the basis behind it? I still don't know why we do it.

Nothing.



I live in Indiana and we just started doing it like 6 years ago? We were the only state who didn't for a long time. I think it's rather silly honestly.

Essentially, it is to give you more daylight at the end of the day (evening) so that way you can do things outside. I believe it was originated to cut energy costs but I am not entirely sure on that.

That's not true.



Hawaii doesn't do it. Neither does AZ.

It started for farmers so their kids could do chores before school so the sun had to seem to come up sooner so they had light.

Lots of places don't do it and nothing bad happens. So if your state stops doing it then it would be fine. If you really dislike it then I would say stat a petition and try to get a bill and see if you can pass a law in you state to stop the Daylight Savings.

I'd be sad but it is not too important. ( not a big deal)

I personally love DST.
There is nothing better about sitting on the front porch until 8-9 at night and watching the kids play in the summer time until the son goes down. :)

It's to save electricity. If people believed it was only 6 pm, they wouldn't turn on their lights, even though it was dark. Benjamin Franklin first proposed it but they finally got around to doing it around WW2.
