“You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason
why we observe daylight saving time.” — Dave Barry
Hawaiians do observe ‘Island Time.’ No need to change our clock.
Why Hawaii Doesn’t Have Daylight Saving Time: Hawaii abandoned the Uniform Time Act in 1967, simply because of its relative proximity to the equator, which makes Daylight Saving Time unnecessary. The sun rises and sets around the same time each day in Hawaii, making the idea of springing forward and falling back redundant.
Who Else Doesn’t Observe Daylight Saving Time? Most areas of the United States observe daylight saving time (DST), the exceptions being Arizona and the overseas territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 established the system of uniform Daylight Saving Time throughout the US.

It’s synchronized to the 24-hour light/dark cycle.
