Spring Ahead? No Thanks!

Tonight, well early tomorrow morning, we take part in the annual tradition of moving our clocks ahead an hour, and losing an hour’s sleep. You would think that by going to bed an hour early would help with the transition, but, it really doesn’t.

I would love to see Minnesota join Arizona, Hawaii, and those other places that do not take part in this annual tradition. Unlike when we go back to Standard Time in theĀ fall, this weekend seems to make me feel so rushed. You run the risk of being late for everything, because your body thinks it’s still 7AM, but the clock says 8. And, have you ever tried to get a toddler to go to bed an hour early because of a clock change? I remember that my girls would fight me on this every year.

There are a lot of “facts” about Daylight Saving Time that are going around, and some of them are not even true. I know, who knew that Benjamin Franklin really wasn’t the person who originated Daylight Saving Time? You can check out these cool facts about this time of year right here. Germany was the first country to enact Daylight Saving Time, not the U.S.

Let us know what you think, should we continue to mess with the clocks, or should we do away with springing ahead and falling back? I do have to say though, I love falling back!
