It's time again to turn your clocks one hour ahead for Daylight Savings, but do you know how this started?

Originally the idea of a British man named William Willett (who also happens to be the great-great grandfather of Coldplay's Chris Martin) who suggested we adjust our clocks in spring and fall to save time from being wasted in the mornings, eventually the practice was adopted in April of 1916 to save fuel and allow people more time to work in the fields.

The Red Cross and local fire departments also use this time as a reminder to change your smoke detector batteries, a practice that could truly save lives. Many fire departments will also supply these batteries.
