What is Daylight Saving Time?

Daylight Saving Time is enforced in areas where there is a great difference between daylight hours in summer and in winter. In Israel, for example, there are 10 hours of daylight in winter and over 14 hours of daylight in the summer. In countries where there is such a difference, Daylight Saving Time is enforced and the result is more daylight hours during waking hours. For a history of daylight saving time, click here .
