Don’t forget to set your clock back an hour for daylight savings time.
This weekend you’ll see plenty of articles about the history of daylight savings time. Many of them will say that Benjamin Franklin invented the concept. It’s true that in 1784, Franklin wrote a satirical letter to the editor of the Journal of Paris, in which he poked fun at the sleep habits of Parisians. As explained in this article, though, others credit George Vernon Hudson in 1895, or William Willett in 1905 with first seriously proposing the concept.
