This year marks the 101st anniversary of daylight saving time.

There are still many misconceptions about this long held tradition.

The official history of Daylight Savings dates back to the early 1900s in Great Britain. A man named William Willett proposed it to increase productivity. He told the government they could “save” the wasted daylight that people were sleeping through.

While the first attempt failed, DST was reestablished during WWII to save energy.
