SOUCHERAY: Losing an hour, a sign of spring
Daylight-Saving Time begins this Sunday morning at 2 a.m. It is the day of the year when we "spring ahead," and seemingly lose an hour of that day.
Daylight-Saving Time was instituted during World War I in an effort to save energy consumption, in order to contribute those monies to the war effort. It was reinstituted during World War II for the same reason and was enacted into law in 1966.
