Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend So Get Ready to ‘Fall Back’
That’s right; it’s time to turn those clocks back. Daylight Saving Time is ending Sunday morning at 2am which basically means you should turn any non-digital clocks back before going to sleep Saturday night.
Most digital clocks change all by themselves, so if you forget to change a few clocks, you can always look at your cell phone to see what time it really is.
Daylight Saving Time lasts 238 days, which is 65% of the year. Changing the clocks back will mean that it starts getting dark earlier at night, but the sun will rise earlier in the morning.
Watch the video below to learn more about Daylight Savings Time and why it isn’t necessarily good for our health.
There are a few locations in the United States that do not observe Daylight Saving Time including Arizona (except for the Navajo Indian Reservation), Hawaii, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands.
It seems that a lot of people don’t like changing their clocks because multiple states have voted to end the time change. Florida passed a bill to permanently stay on Daylight Saving Time, and California passed a similar proposition. The Florida bill is waiting for approval from Congress and the California proposition is waiting for approval from the state legislature. Oregon and Washington state are considering bills to stay on Daylight Saving Time as well.
Meanwhile, multiple New England states want to permanently stay on Atlantic Standard Time. These states include Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
