Sunday ends Daylight Saving Time


Daylight Saving Time was created during World War I to decrease energy use. In 1942, during World War II, it was used year-round. Now, more than 125,000 people have petitioned congress to end Daylight Saving Time.

A majority of Houstonians and the majority like gaining an extra hour.

“I get an extra hour of sleep, so I’m excited,” said one woman.

“Just give me more time to be out and do more activities,” said one man.

“You just feel like more rest, so you have more time to do more stuff, if you don’t lose it. Now, when you lose it, you feel a little bit more stressed out,” said another woman.

“We get an extra hour of sleep, so that’s a big plus for me. Especially on the weekend you get an extra hour of rest, or if you’re going out then you got that time,” said another man.

We go back to Daylight Saving Time in March, which others prefer.

“I like when we have more daylight so I prefer the Spring ahead and get to stay out later for the kids and play outside and have more time with them,” said one man.

Daylight saving is observed in about 70 countries.

For years, Texas lawmakers like Rep. Jason Isaac have tried to put Texas permanently on Central Daylight Time.
