The daylight saving time (DST) is the practice of advancing the clocks one hour ahead in order to use the daylight more efficiently in the summer months. Usually the switch happens in the last Sunday of March. The clocks are reverted to astronomical time in the last Sunday of October.
The idea for DST was conceived by the New Zealander George Hudson in the end of XIX century and was first implemented in 1916 in Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Currently the DST is observed in the EU countries, North America, some Australian provinces, New Zealand, several countries in South America, Namibia in Africa and several countries in Asia. Many countries across the world have abolished the DST for various reasons. Most recently this was done by Russia in 2014.
