You’ll Need More Interior Lighting: Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday, Nov. 3

If you’ve been wanting to update your interiors with stylish contemporary lighting, you couldn’t pick a better time than Sunday, Nov. 3, which marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. As we set the clocks back an hour, you’ll be relying even more on interior lighting to banish the darkness and fill your home with light and warmth.

Sculpta Lights, your source for designer home lighting for every room of your home, offers an exciting selection of contemporary chandeliers, table lamps, floor lamps and pendant lights.

A Nation Divided

As we get ready to bid Daylight Saving Time farewell for another year, once again, the nation is divided. Every year as the first Sunday in November approaches, some people will be happily looking forward to gaining an extra hour of sleep, while others will be bemoaning what they perceive as the impending loss of daylight hours.

According to Live Science, “Daylight saving time has a rocky past. Established in the United States in 1918, daylight saving time was a contentious matter and was repealed in 1919. The standardized clock changes, however, were re-established nationally early in World War II and observed from Feb. 9, 1942 through Sept. 30, 1945.”

Live Science goes on to say that, “After the war, U.S. states were free to choose whether to observe daylight saving time, and if they did, the calendar start dates of the time change. The result was time confusion for travelers and newscasters. In 1966, Congress enacted the Uniform Time Act, which stated that if any state observed daylight saving time, it had to follow a uniform protocol, beginning and ending on the same dates throughout the country.”

Which brings us to today. The folks who would prefer that Daylight Saving Time remain in effect permanently may be louder, but according to polls, they are in the minority.

On the Bright Side

Even while Daylight Saving Time still reigns, you may have noticed the fading light as you make your way home from work. With every day, we are moving closer and closer to the winter equinox, the shortest day of the year.  This year, the winter equinox falls on Saturday, Dec. 21.

In other words, you were going to be turning on the lights earlier anyway. Having beautiful contemporary lighting from Sculpta Lights will help you keep the darkness at bay.  Shop our full collection of designer home lighting now.
