I'm pretty sure people living in CST and EST timezones don't change their clocks. Not too sure though, so you're not in one of the only places :p

Why Daylight Savings?

There are two key reasons that mesh with each other.

It's supposed to be so that in summer it pushes the daylight longer after people are out of work. This means vendors of activities are supposed to ... hold more activities. This means people should get out more. When people get out more, they're not at home with 12 lights, 3 game consoles, and 4 appliances running. It's supposed to save electricity.

But back to our activity vendors. If people are spending more, it also boosts the economy.
