Turn Those Clocks Back Sunday

(UNDATED) – You will get an extra hour of sleep on Sunday when daylight saving time ends. As the saying goes, it’s once again time to “fall back.”

At 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1, you will need to turn your clocks back one hour.

So where did daylight saving time actually come from – initially the idea of setting clocks ahead in the spring was presented as a way to help farmers with crops and harvesting by having more daylight.

A congressional act passed in 2007 extended daylight saving time from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

Now, every state observes daylight saving time it except for Hawaii and most of Arizona.

Daylight saving time begins again on Sunday, March 8.
