Daylight saving time begins Sunday


Clocks are moved forward one hour from 2 a.m. standard time to 3 a.m. daylight savings time.

Though mentioned by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, the modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented during the First World War.

This is also a good time to change batteries in smoke alarms.
