  • So let's gear up to spring forward this Sunday and find out five things you didn't know about daylight saving.

  • The first thing you didn't know about daylight saving time.

  • It was all about bugs.

  • An entomologist named George Vernon Hudson was one of the first to seriously push this.

  • He was frustrated by how early the sunset during the summer months, which cut short his bug hunting.

  • He thought springing the clocks forward would allow more daylight for bug collecting.

  • The clocks could then be switched back in the winter, when it was too cold.

  • It wasn't until 1916 when daylight saving time was actually first practiced.

  • Stops were possible because trains can't magically jumped down the track to make up for the last hour.

  • So don't be late.

  • Rise and shine with five things you didn't know about daylight saving time.

So let's gear up to spring forward this Sunday and find out five things you didn't know about daylight saving.
