It's wild the amount of complaining I hear when we "spring forward" in March. "I can't believe we are gonna lose an hour of sleep this weekend"... I mean, it's an hour, bro, really?

Well, it's not springtime, it's fall and we are getting ready to "fall back" and end daylight saving time once again.

The clocks used to change in the months of April and October, but that changed in 2007 under President George W. Bush.

THE POINT OF DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME IS TO ALLOW FOR MORE DAYLIGHT IN THE AFTERNOON AND LESS IN THE MORNING

The use of Daylight Saving Time in U.S. has often been debated where some enjoy and others hate it. During the first world war, DST was instated to conserve energy.

Studies have shown, that switching to DST from early March to early November saves on electricity. Apparently more people use energy at night, lights, television etc etc. Another advantage of DST is those long summer nights!

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
