** Daylight Saving Time begins. At 2a set clocks ahead to 3a. 2nd Sunday in March Yearly.
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. Ends on the first Sunday in November. Clubbers get one hour less tonight.
