📜 History of Daylight Saving Day
Many newspapers and historians, however, attribute Daylight Saving to English carpenter and outdoorsman William Willet, who devised his own solution in 1905 after observing how many Londoners slept through a substantial portion of a summer’s day. He announced his idea of advancing the clocks by an hour during the summer months two years later. On February 12, 1908, Robert Pearce, a Liberal Party member of parliament, took up the suggestion and proposed the first Daylight Saving Bill to the House of Commons. But the bill did not become law, and in the years that followed, many other plans also failed.
On July 1, 1908, Port Arthur, Ontario became the first city in the world to implement Daylight Saving Time. Orillia, Ontario, quickly followed in the footsteps of the city. On April 30, 1916, Austria-Hungary and the German Empire implemented Daylight Saving Time in order to preserve coal throughout the war. Britain and her allies, as well as other neutral European states, quickly followed suit. Russia and a few other nations waited until the next year before adopting the notion, and the United States did it in 1918. With the exception of Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, and portions of the United States, many legislatures abandoned Daylight Saving Time after the war. It became popular again during World War II, and because of the energy crisis of the 1970s, it was used a lot in both the United States and Europe.
