Daylight Saving or Standard Time? [POLL]
Both Daylight Saving Time and standard time have their advantages to me, but I can tell you one thing for sure… I like when we change from Daylight Saving to standard a heck of a lot more than the opposite. Gaining an extra hour of sleep is always much more pleasant in my book. That’s exactly what we will be doing early Sunday morning. Which clock do you prefer?
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. This means you’ll “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour. Many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Savings Time begins or ends.
- The official spelling is Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight SavingS Time
- In the U.S., clocks change at 2 a.m. local time. In spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59 a.m. to 3 a.m.; in fall, clocks fall back from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
- Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Savings Time.
- Many fire departments encourage people to change the batteries in their smoke detectors when they change their clocks because Daylight Saving Time provides a convenient reminder.
