Please. There is one "s" in Daylight Saving Time. It can be found at the beginning of Saving. The last letter in the word is g.



End transmission.

Well technically the OP is correct, when you think about a single day and more daylight.

But since most people talk about the entire warm weather season as a whole, it's plural.

See?

I know that Saving is proper, but seems to me Savings would be technically correct as well. One's a verb, the other is a noun. We're either saving daylight or achieving daylight savings.

If we are to save daylight, why do we start at 3 AM when it is dark with no daylight?
