Forbes Living TV on Daylight Savings Time

Fall back, Spring ahead. Saturday night before we hit the sack we need to move clocks up one hour. This should give us one more hour of daylight in which to get home from work. One more hour of daylight to walk the dog or take a walk ourselves. Forbes Living TV shares what this wacky time change means.

The government doesn't require U.S. states or territories to observe daylight saving time. Some do and some do not. Most North American and European nations observe DST, while most African and Asian nations do not. There are many who question whether the practice of moving time one hour ahead or back actually does any good. Forbes Living also notes that no matter how many times we are reminded to change the clocks, some will forget and arrive an hour too early or an hour late. And since there are numerous clocks in a home, at least one will be forgotten and its usually the one we need to set the most. Depending on where you live, this is a reminder to change your clocks before going to sleep Saturday night. And tell us: do you think Daylight Savings Time is a waste of time or does it have its benefits?
