One common question often gets asked.What is the point of daylight saving time? There are a few simple, yet important reasons. When daylight savings time was first created, it was to save electricity. Most businesses start early and end late, where lighting is needed in the heavy winter months with low sunlight. To conserve this, daylight must be saved in previous months in order to rationalize the amount of electricity for not only industries, but common household activities such as turning on the lights during winters, and using household appliances such as washing machines. Secondly, Daylight Savings helped to conserve daylight for agricultural purposes. By giving extra daylight during the winter, there is more opportunities for a greater and bountiful harvest. It is still relevant today as the same situations occur for using electricity and daylight efficiently.
