‘Daylight Saving Time’ comes into effect from March 13; The time difference between the US East Coast and most states in Brazil is two hours

Daylight Saving Time, which has been in effect since March 13 in the United States, ends this Sunday, March 6, at 2:00 a.m. At this time, all clocks should be set one hour back. According to reports, only parts of the state of Arizona and Hawaii do not observe the so-called “Daylight Savings Time”.

There is no consensus on the origin of daylight saving time in our civilizational history. But some studies suggest that it was coined in 1784 by Benjamin Franklin in America when he noticed that during certain months of the year, the sun rose before people woke up.

Others argue that it was established in 1918 with the aim of making the most of sunlight and reducing the electrical energy load.

In March of this year, the US Congress passed legislation making daylight saving time permanent starting in 2023. Proponents of the proposal argued that in addition to saving electricity, longer days would lead to more economic activity.
