Daylight Saving Time (DST) is a seasonal time change practice.

DST is also known as “summer time” in some countries

 The practice of DST was first proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1784.

DST was first implemented in Germany in 1916 to conserve energy during World War I.

In the United States, DST begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.

In 2023, DST will begin on March 12 and end on November 5 in the United States 

The European Union observes DST from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October

The Sunshine Protection Act, which would make DST permanent, was approved by the U.S. Senate in 2022 .
