Spring Ahead! It's Daylight Saving Time!Posted in Announcements by CashCrate Dana
Daylight Saving Time starts Sunday, March 12th 2017. Yay! The days get an hour longer. Not really, but it seems that way. For many, it’s nice to have an extra hour of daylight in the evenings.
Technically, you’re supposed to move your clocks one hour ahead at 2:00:00 AM in the morning. Things like computers, cell phones, and DVR’s will probably adjust the time on their own. If you live in Arizona or somewhere else that doesn’t follow daylight saving time, you can disregard this. For those that follow daylight saving time, read on.
When you wake up in the morning on March 12th, you may not feel as well rested. Why? It’s because you lost an hour of sleep. For some of us, it’s worth the trade off to have it get darker one hour later in the day. For others, they would rather have the sleep. Many debate the whole idea of daylight saving time and think we should get rid of it entirely. What are your thoughts?
Daylight saving time first started as a way to save energy almost 100 years ago. It was hoped it would reduce lighting demand and coal consumption during the dark hours. In reality, it’s caused more confusion than energy savings over the past century.
Daylight does get shorter in the winter time. There is nothing we can do about that. Does daylight saving time help us take advantage of the sunlit hours? That’s still open to debate. As far as CashCrate is concerned, you can complete surveys and make money 24 hours a day, whether it’s light or dark. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead if you need to and feel free to share your opinions about daylight saving time. Enjoy the sunshine.
