1784 - Benjamin Franklin comes up with the idea of daylight-saving time when he writes that Parisians could save thousands of francs a year by waking up earlier during the summer because it would prevent them from having to buy so many candles to light the evening hours.
So thanks to him, we'll all be adjusting our clocks and sleeping habits just a bit this weekend...
...when daylight saving time begins on Sunday, March 9 at 2am.
Don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour!
