Central Time Zone

A time zone is a standard time used in a geographic area. It's the time we've all agreed to follow so it's easier to travel, communicate and barter with people around the world.

These lines aren't straight and neat, many are negotiated and agreed based on the country's needs.

Central Time Zone (CT) consists of places that use:

- Central Standard Time

- Central Daylight Time

Central time zones can either be Standard or Daylight depending if the region using the zone observes daylight savings time during spring and summer seasons.

Central Standard Time or CST for short is 6 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC - 6:00). During the months when daylight savings is observed, Central time zone changes to Central Daylight Time or CDT which is 5 hours behind Universal Time (UTC -05:00).

This means that the time zones leveraged in central time zone regions are 7 places behind the starting line of Greenwich.
