Daylight Savings Definition:Time during which clocks are set one hour forward of local standard time, at the beginning of spring to provide extra daylight during spring and summer in the evenings, causing the name "daylight savings".
The History Behind It: Daylight savings first began in New Zealand in 1909. Sir Thomas Kay Sidey annually put forward a bill, to advance the clocks forward 1 hour from September to the following March. In 2007 the government extended daylight saving from 24 to 27 weeks. Daylight savings now begins the last Sunday in September until the first Sunday in April.
Daylight Savings ends for us Kiwi's tonight so before you go to bed remember to wind your clocks back one hour! I will miss sitting outside at night and watching the sun go down over our beautiful mountain! Here is a picture of the sun setting over our farm, to me it's picture perfect! Roll on September!
