Daylight Savings Time Around The Globe 2011

Daylight Savings Time or DST is on the Monday after the time adjustment always a nightmare. Many clocks need to be adjusted and often they are adjusted in the wrong direction. In Europe Saturday night, or for some the early Sunday morning the clock went from 3:00am to 2:00 am finalizing the daylight savings time 2011.

However for the United States daylight savings time starts in the early morning of 6 November and will go from 2:00 am back to 1:00 am..

Why Daylight Savings Time

Daylight savings time – DST – was introduced in the early years of the last century to preserve energy and in our computerized world of today, this only makes even more sense. 2 hours in a year on billions of light bulbs makes the difference. Also road safety is an important element for DST as evening traffic around the globe commences in bright daylight rather then in dusk.

This shows that the whole world community benefits from daylight savings time - DST.

How To Remember Daylight Savings Time Adjustment

Thousands of people around the globe struggle every year with remembering if the clock needs to go forward or backward.

The easiest way to remember is that you want the “shortest summer”. Meaning that in spring the time goes forward and in fall the clock goes backward. Resulting in a summer which is two hours shorter.

Start Daylight Savings Time 2012

In the USA daylight savings time starts on the Sunday of the second weekend in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

For 2012 the United states will implement daylight savings time on 11 March and finalize at 4 November.

In Europe in the night of 25 March the daylight savings time will start and 28 October will end the daylight savings time.
