In a world where time seems to be constantly changing, Arizona, one of the states of the United States, remains steadfast in refusing to participate in the biannual ritual of changing the clocks. Known for its stunning scenery and vibrant culture, Arizona has not observed Daylight Saving Time (DST) for more than four decades. Let’s explore the story and the reasons behind this extraordinary decision.
Arizona’s rejection of DST dates back to 1968, when the state legislature voted against joining the time change. However, it was not until 1973 that the decision was officially implemented. Since then, Arizona has remained in the Mountain Time Zone (MST) throughout the year, without adjusting the clocks forward or backward.
