Spring Begins

Spring Begins History

Spring traditionally marks the end of Winter and the beginning of a season that signifies longer days and warmer temperatures. The first day of Spring is also know as the Vernal Equinox. This marks the day that the Suns path is directly over the equator. This day also contains equal amounts of day time and night time.  This day typically occurs each year on March 20, and on March 21 on some years.

Daylight Saving Time Begins

Daylight Saving Time Begins History: Daylight Savings time was begun in an effort to help save energy and provide workers with more hours of serviceable daylight during the long summer days.  Daylight Savings Time was first introduced in the U.S. in 1918.  However, it was not until 1966, when the Uniform Act was passed, that all states had to either observe DST or pass a state law to abstain.
