Spring forward early tradition? by the_zec Q: Has anyone heard of anyone putting spring forward a few months early? Someone from California mentioned it to me, as if it was a casual thing to do. Thanks Yes I am referring to daylight saving, but this person seemed to think it was a tradition to put one hour forward on their clocks early...has anyone heard of that?

A: The "spirng forward" that I know of is the rule for daylight savings: spring forward, fall back. In the spring, we set clocks forward an hour, and in the fall, we set them back. Could the person have been referrint to dayligh savings?

What is the purpose of changing our clocks back? and then moving them forward in the Spring? by Justin S Q: I heard it used to be for farmers so they could get the most out of daylight, yet in this day and age is it really neccessary? It seems more like a nuisance than anything. who cares if the mornings are darker, id rather have more sunlight in the evening.

A: It still essentially has the same purpose - to make the most out of daylight, to take advantage of as much light as possible.

Do you like to fall back, or spring forward with the time? Which is better for you, and why? by Q:

A: Generally the fall back is better, because that gives one an extra hour on Sunday morning to sleep in, as opposed to spring forward, where one is robbed of an hour. and also it is easier to on the Monday following to get up for work an hour later than it is to get up an hour earlier.

When do we change our clocks this year, from spring forward to fall back? by jackattack Q:

(i.e we set our clocks back one hour: so you will set your clock to 1:00 AM) On March 14, 2010 at 2:00 AM Day Lights Savings Time starts.

Spring Forward, Fall Back? Why Do The Clocks Change at Certain Times Of The Year? by Green 2 Brown Q: I've never really understood why, in the UK, the clocks always change back/forward depending on the time of year. Can someone please explain, because I'm always just left feeling confused because I don't understand why it happens. Thanks for the help G2B

A: Well it is considered daylight savings in the summer, because the days are generally longer, they spring the time forward in the spring so when most people get home from work it is already light out and they don't have to turn many lights on. In North America this year we changed the clocks forward about a month early. The main benefit to this is in the spring and fall. In summer with daylight savings the sun doesn't set until like 11pm, but without day light savings it would be light out at 3 in the morning, so it's a trade off.

Do I spring forward tonight or tomorrow night? by juliettavirgo Q: It's daylight savings time. Everything says 2 a.m. Sunday. So, is that 2 a.m. tonight or 2 a.m. tomorrow night?

A: 2am tonight basically because tomorrow will be sunday. 2am the next night would be 2am monday. you don't have to stay up til 2am, just change them before you go to bed and it'll be all set. Are you really gonna need to know the time while you're sleeping?

Do you like the fact that we spring forward the clocks this weekend? by the cook Q: besides saying yes or no please tell me why I also wish they would leave it alone. I love it when it gets dark later

Who here is looking forward to spring and summer? by XxVampsRulesxX Q: I know I am! I'm sick of winter cause I can never do anything fun.

A: Me!!!!!!!!!!!! I get this wonderful feeling whenever I think of spring* and summer*!!!!!!

Seniors, what is your reason for looking forward to spring/summer? by handyman Q: I have two reasons, one is practical and one is silly. 1. I will be glad when the weather gets warmer because the electric and gas bills won't be so high. 2. I have a new chest freezer and will never run out of ice for my iced tea again. There are other reasons, but those are the two main ones this year. What are your reasons? YGG, there is NOTHING on earth as good as fresh tomatoes!

A: I just got all excited reading everyone's answer. I look forward to not having to pay the oil man $600 to fill my old tank. I get out more often when the weather is warmer and I love picking out my hanging flower baskets. I love the smell of grass clippings and look forward to sitting on my new enlarged deck.

Time Change: "Spring Forward" Anyone think it is unnecessary? by funkybass4ever! Q: I couldn't figure what category to put it under. A new study says that it doesn't save us money- it actually costs us because we are running our heaters more in the mornings and using our air conditioners in the evenings more (throughout the time period). How long does it take for you to get used to the time change?

A: Paranoid answer: it is because the man wants to keep us down by continually changing the time every 6 months, our circadian rhythms are jacked up, so we are too tired to better ourselves through eating better, exercising, and maybe going back to school to get better degrees and a better education. Non-paranoid answer: it is so that we have extra daylight time at the end of the day to spend outdoors with our families exercising so we can burn more calories and be healthier, fitter, and happier.

When the clocks go forward for spring is there an hour more in the day or an hour less? by xxBet I can help :)xx Q: Prob sounds a bit stupid but I can't visualise it.

Am I the only one thats looking forward to Spring Training? by Mitch D Q: It doesn't seem like too many people seem excited for baseball this year. I mean Pitchers and Catchers reported yesterday yet there doesn't seem to be much discussion related to MLB.

A: No, you are not the only one. I've been counting the days to Spring Training for weeks now. It's a great time for baseball fans, not only do we get to follow our teams again, but it's great to see the old faces in new places. After a long winter of snow and ice, it's great to see reports from Florida and to see major league players getting ready for the start of the 2011 season.

What percentage of people forget to Spring Forward? by c&h Q:

A: Hypothetically, at least 25-35 percent.

A: Next Sunday, March 14.

When did scientists discover we needed to spring forward and fall back 1 hour.? by jracer403 Q: i dont know if this is the right category. Should we have changed the clocks before this was discovered?

A: Nobody "discovered" you have to have daylight savings time. You simply decide you want to alter the clock so that you have more daylight in the evening and less in the morning. It was a legislative thing. But you are not getting anything from nature that isn;t already there. And farmers were not affected by it either. They've always got up with the sun and gone back in when it got dark. During WWII people started to realize that we could conserve electricity by altering the day to take advantage of daylight in the evening. The business community was great proponent also, since most people do shopping after work rather than in the morning and they do more shopping in daylight than in the dark. One year they experimented with staying on daylight savings time. But it was dark so late in the morning, when kids were going back to school, that it was considered too dangerous for kids with regard to traffic. So he we are.

how bad are you looking forward to spring? by honey Q: i got real excited today when i noticed green grass popping up, leaves on trees and buds starting to form. i can't wait to see all the little baby animals in spring! today is a beautiful day and i wish i could take my desk outside to work.

A: I w-a-n-t it NOW! I am so sick an tired of all this cold and darkness...I really just can't take it anymore.

POLL: Which do you like more, Spring Forward, or Fall back? by Q: I love both, but I think I love fall back better. I love the dark outside. Spring forward - Bright at 6pm Fall Back - Dark around 5.30, 6pm How bout you?

A: spring forward- reminds me of a band I like

The time change - fall backward, spring forward - really worth it? by Q: So called "benefits" of time change, especially in spring do not outweigh the problems: adjustment, health problems (rise in heart attacks documented), lower productivity, students sleeping in school, more wrecks, etc. It is time to let the voters decide about this ill-conceived fiasco that was forced on us by the Federal government, which has no Constitutional authority to regulate time. Contact your state legislators and demand that your state says no.

A: Hi, I don't like the time change to be honest, but it's supposed to be for farmers I think, and working hours. It's a bit outdated though, and no one ever knows when the clocks are going to change! ~Mystic.

is there an equivalent phrase in those countries below the equator for "Spring forward, Fall back" ? by marigold Q: We change our clocks for daylight savings time. In the Northern hemisphere, we say "Fall back and Spring forward" to indicate how to adjust the clocks. Do countries below the equator (e.g. Brazil, Australia) have a similar saying since their seasons are reversed ? Yes other countries do have Daylight Savings time.

WILL YOU BE CHANGING YOUR CLOCKS TO SPRING FORWARD? by dragon Q: WHAT 2 places in the usa don't abide by the spring forward or fall back???

A: Yes, what a waste of TIME. Pun intended. Is it not time to quit this idiotic ritual? It was put in in WW ll. So that there would still be daylight left to work our Victory Gardens when we got home from work. Since very few people can even grow gardens any more let alone can the vegies for winter use, let us stop always moving time around. There is no time for this nonsense. It seems worse to lose an hours sleep in the Spring than to gain an hour in the Fall. STOP MOVING TIME AROUND ALL THE TIME.!!!!!

Fall Back, Spring Forward is dumb because they're interchangeable? by Rose Arizona Q: You could easily fall forward just as easily as you could spring back. This has caused a lot of confusion in my life. Just tell me what time it is, please.

A: For the confused on the fall back, spring forward... there's always the option of looking at the following procedure. Later in the year, go back (to summer), early in the year, go forward (to summer). Reverse (to winter) for the southern hemisphere. If you are a global type of a person... then go towards the middle of the year when its either summer or winter.

Do you like Spring Forward or Fall Back? by Z Q: I like Spring Forward, because the day seems to go quicker. How about you? But, Sunday will go faster ,then it will be monday!
