Raise your hand if you're still feeling exhausted from the time change!

You can't see me, but believe my hand is raised right now.  As we change the clocks back every fall and push them forward every spring, I can't help but wonder why we're still taking part in this nonsense.

Apparently, the right people who can change this are wondering that too...but more on that later.

Why do we take part in Daylight Saving Time?

If you're wondering why we even bother putting ourselves through hell twice a year, here's a brief history lesson.  According to Vox.com, it was done as an energy-saving tactic starting in WWI and then became the norm in the 60s.  I didn't realize it was a fairly new practice, did you?

Will the United States to keep Daylight Saving Time, and eliminate a time change?

If a new bill is passed, we may be seeing some extra sunlight for good.  Rejoice!  The New York Times shared the news that the Senate approved a bill that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent as of 2023 (meaning we'd only have to turn the clocks back one more time this November, and forward again next spring).

Who else needs to approve the bill for permanent Daylight Saving Time?

Before you get too excited, the bill needs to go through a few more steps before it becomes law (wasn't there a Schoolhouse Rock song about this?)  The House of Representatives still needs to put their stamp of approval on things before it's passed and signed off on by The President.

But fingers crossed this one works out!  I'm tired of losing an hour of sleep, and the sun setting so early in the winter is just depressing.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
