Daylight Saving Time starts this weekend for everyone living in the USA. So spring forward and be sure to set your clocks one hour ahead when you go to bed on Saturday night. One of the biggest proponents of DST during the early 1900's was the fashion and merchant industry. It allowed people time to go window shopping after work rather than just heading home. It also spurned a new trend for fashion called the "5 to midnight" outfit. I am reading a book called Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time by Michael Downing. It is a very funny book and full of useless information that only a weirdo like me would find fascinating! The author does a great job of telling humorous stories about the industries and leaders who were both for and against DST. Many of whom often switched sides. Did you know that there was no such thing as standard time in this country until the invention of the railroad?
