The Only State Not to Follow Daylight Savings Time

by Ryan Shell

Daylight Savings Time.

You either love it or hate it.

But regardless, it’s highly likely that is throws your schedule out of whack twice a year.

That is, unless you are the one state in the continental U.S. that doesn’t follow Daylight Savings Time.

And which state is that?

Arizona.

So, why doesn’t Arizona take part in this lovely little schedule thrower offer? Here’s some information when found on the topic,

“According to an Arizona Republic editorial from 1969, the reason was the state’s extreme heat. If Arizona were to observe Daylight Saving Time, the sun would stay out until 9 p.m. in the summer (instead of 8 p.m., like it does currently).

“[Data] clearly show that we must wait until about 9 p.m. DST to start any night-time activity such as drive-in movies, moonlight rides, convincing little children it’s bedtime, etc,” the editorial stated. “And it’s still hot as blazes!”

Another Arizona Republic editorial from 1968 stated, “Drive-in theaters, the parents of small children, the bars, the farmers and those who do business with California” were against Daylight Saving time while “power companies, the evening golfers, the late risers, and the people with business interests on the Eastern seaboard” were for it.”

Interesting.
