It’s almost time to set your clocks forward—again. Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m., March 12. If you’ve ever wondered why we keep up this tradition—which was first implemented on a national scale by the German Empire in 1916—the answer is simple. Getting rid of Daylight Saving Time would require an act of Congress. It’s something a lot of states are petitioning for. Multiple states, including Nevada, have sent resolutions to Congress and the Oval Office asking for an end to the biyearly time travel that leads to many of us to be late or—worse yet—early when we forget to reset our clocks.
