Daylight savings time world

In 1784 Benjamin Franklin suggested the idea of Daylight savings time. New Zealand entomologist George Hudson is also credited by many for Daylight Savings Time.

In the northern hemisphere, DST begins between March and ends in November. In November clocks will have to move back again. The United States Energy Policy Act of 2005 says Daylight Saving Time ends on the first Sunday of November.

DST isn’t observed by the entire United States, according to National Geographic, the federal government doesn’t require U.S. states or territories to observe Daylight Saving Time. Residents in states like Hawaii won’t need to change their time today.
