Do you have friends or family many time zones away? I do, and timeanddate.com is my go-site for orienting myself to their local time. Should I phone now? Oh wait, it's the kids' bedtime, better wait an hour.

The workhorse of this site is the World Clock. Find the current time in more than 600 locations, current weather for 300 cities, and various converters and international meeting planners. All sortable and customizable!  Other offerings in the Time Zone menu give international dialing codes, a day and night world map, and local rising and setting times for sun and moon. Also a distance calculator and a detailed breakdown of daylight savings transitions around the world.

Moving to the date menu, you can find background on holidays (U.S, Canada, the U.K. and Australia only, for this feature); calendars every way you want to slice them; a calculator to show the time elapsed between two dates; and a seasons calculator with great information about the solstices and equinoxes. None of this is essential to your life but it sure is fun if you are interested in the seasons and the passage of time.

If you don't use this site or one like it, you may wonder just how useful it can possibly be. But if anything here sounds interesting to you, try timeanddate.com and it may become one of your favorite reference sites.
