SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Daylight Savings Time begins at 2:00am this this Sunday morning.  If you do not move your clocks an hour ahead, you will be an hour late tomorrow.  For residents weary from the apparent dueling nor’easters, Day Light Savings is viewed as springing out of winter and into spring and summer.

Day Light Savings Time was first discussed in the United States by Benjamin Franklin.  The Uniform Time Act of 1966 established uniform Daylight Savings Times throughout the different time zones.  Day Light Savings time begins the second Sunday of March and ends the first Sunday of November.  It is followed by most States in the United States.  Daylight Savings has been enacted to help maximize day light hours and help energy efficiencies. 

When asked about her feelings regarding Day Light Saving’s Time, TAP of South Plainfield Editor, Darlene Tedesco Cullen said “Day Light Savings couldn’t come soon enough.  Anyone that knows me knows I am not a winter person.  Between the snow and potholes. I think everyone wants to spring ahead and not just me.”
