Fall back Sunday


November 4, 2021

POMEROY–Fall, the season to fall back, reclaiming what was taken away in the spring, with the tradition of moving clocks back to standard time at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 7.

The practice of Daylight savings time is to move the clocks ahead one hour in the spring to claim more daylight toward the end of the day. For George Hudson, an entomologist, in 1895, proposed a two-hour change in order to have more time for bug hunting. During World War I, it helped preserve fuel usage for power and light. It was also found that the increased daylight improved visibility while driving, reducing pedestrian fatalities during the dawn and dust hours. Not only that, studies have claimed a slight reduction in robberies.

When fall comes, days become shorter and by falling back on hour, make better use of natural light.
