Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time is used by many countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland, Spain and France, and in most American States during the summer, so that it is lighter for longer during the evenings and darker for longer in the mornings. Clocks in regions that use Daylight Saving Time are typically moved forward by one hour at the beginning of the spring and moved back again by an hour again in autumn.

The system, the idea for which is usually attributed to George Vernon Hudson, an English-born astronomer and entomologist, was first introduced in Germany during World War I, partly in order to try to save coal by reducing the need for lighting in the evenings. Other countries, including the UK, soon followed suit.
