However, from November to March, our mornings would be significantly darker.

More than a year later, it has not been voted on by a House committee. World War II Britain outdid its allies by adopting "double summer time", setting clocks two hours forward, putting London temporarily in the odd position of being one hour later than Paris, creating what must have been a monumental headache for D-Day planners.

In Florida the answer is, not very many people. According to the Sheriff's Office, the man received a message on his computer telling him to buy the gift cards at local stores and to send them to an address; in return, the message said, the man would receive money. To observe it permanently would require a change in federal laws. Some of our 50 states - Hawaii and parts of Arizona - don't go along with the deal.

While some babies easily adjust to the time change, others take a little longer, child sleep expert Amy Lage writes on Macaroni Kid. Some cities like NY would observe it while rural areas around them did not.

If Florida alone went to daylight saving time, it would be on Eastern time zone during summer months and Atlantic time zone in the winter. Any change, most of those states decided, would depend on their neighbors doing the same, according to the New York Times. IN used to not follow it, but in 2006, made a decision to officially start following it.

"I like it because my grandson plays soccer and it's better to sit out and watch the soccer game when it's still light out", this woman said.

First introduced as a wartime measure, most in the agriculture industry were opposed to the time switch. In 1966, the Uniform Time Act finally standardized daylight saving time in the U.S. Those same numbers drop below normal for a short period of time following the fall time change.

A time zone change requires either an act of Congress or a regulatory action from the Department of Transportation.

The American public has had a love-hate relationship with daylight saving time since it first became law in 1918.

Sen. Dave Oehlke, R-Devils Lake, sponsored Senate Bill 2167, which would have = required the entire state to be on Central Standard Time, as well as remain on standard time year-round.

But if all is approved, Floridians - who'll set their clocks ahead one hour this Sunday when Daylight Saving Time begins - won't have to mess with it ever again. That got the idea shelved until the unlikely event NY hops onboard.

In Israel in 1999, the country had just reverted to standard time but the West Bank was on DST.
