"WAR TIME" or better known as Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins tonight as we "Spring Forward" one hour!! The idea for DST first began as early as the 1700's as a way to maximize daylight working hours and later into the early 1900's as a way to save electricity and coal.
It was the Germans during #WWI who first practiced DST on April 30, 1916 as a way to conserve electricity for the war effort. The British who had been considering it for years followed a few weeks later.

When America entered the war they also adjusted to DST in March of 1918 but it was so despised that it was repealed by President Wilson in 1919.

#DaylightSavingsTime: Where we time travel as a society by exactly one hour twice a year by falling into the past before springing back to where we were/are.

The only side effects are mass jetlag and minor hysteria.

Note: the states of AR & HI do not share in this witchcraft.
Note: #HawaiiFB can't currently go into over-overtime because they do not participate as a state in #DaylightSavingTime.
Is it #DaylightSavingsTime or #DaylightSavingTime, because Twitter seems pretty evenly split rn.
