There are Multiple Reasons to Set the Timezone in WordPress. One good reason is that we want to have any emails that come from the site to show the time it was sent in our timezone.

Another reason is that many popular plugins such as The Events Calendar recommend that we set the proper time so that events can be displayed correctly.
