Daylight Saving Time ends. Set clocks back to 1a. 1st Sunday in November Yearly. 2a.
Daylight Saving Time (DST) denotes the period of the year when clocks are set ahead one hour. Settings clocks ahead in the summer (spring ahead), and back in the winter (fall back) allows the clock hour to better match the cycle of daylight and night. This provides more daylight time during waking hours. DST was originally suggested by Benjamin Franklin in 1784. It began to be commonly observed during World War I. DST was formally adopted through the Uniform Time Act of 1966, then changed by a few weeks in 2007. Daylight Savings Time starts on the second Sunday in March. INFO SHARE
