Big Sunday Savings. On Sunlight.

Big Sunday Savings. On Sunlight.
This Sunday morning, most Americans enjoyed big savings — an extra hour of sleep. By 2:00AM, people in most of the United States set their clocks ahead one hour. Many households also changed the batteries in their smoke detectors. In Arizona, where they don’t believe in Daylight Saving Time, people mark the day by putting fresh ammunition in their handguns.

The United States observes DST beginning on the second Sunday in March; the European Union on the last Sunday in March. Tunisia, Bangladesh, and Fiji have joined Arizona and no longer observe Daylight Saving Time.  We do not know if these counties also concur with Arizona’s denial of Climate Change, Water Fluoridation, International Law, and Evolution.

There are many theories as to why Arizona rejects Daylight Saving Time. We think the state’s many retirees can’t figure out how to change the digital time settings on their old VHS machines.
