Bulgaria: Tonight we are Moving the Clocks 1 Hour Forward for Summer Time

Tonight we are moving to summer time. The clocks will move an hour ahead. Daylight Saving Time will be in force until October 28.

The idea of ​​using daylight more efficiently is launched several times, with its first supporter being the American ambassador to Paris in the 1880s, Benjamin Franklin, reminds Dnevnik. The next attempts to introduce summer time were from 1895 and 1908.

The first time it was properly introduced was in Germany in 1915, when the First World War was in full swing. The reason is that it will save coal and the industry will be more efficient. After the end of the combat, the daylight saving time is also stopped. The practice became commonly introduced in the late 70s of the last century. In Bulgaria the Daylight Saving Time was introduced in 1979.

Last month, the EC announced it was evaluating the existing summer-time surveys. This was requested by MEPs after discussing whether summer time would be canceled.
