Don’t Forget To ‘Spring Forward’ This Weekend – Daylight Saving Time Starts March 10th, 2013

Beano, TSM

Daylight Saving Time starts this Sunday, March 10th, 2013. It could possibly be my least favorite weekend of the year. Why? Because we get to ‘spring forward’ and lose an hour of precious sleep on Saturday night.

It also means that, inevitably, I will forget to set one of my clocks ahead and end up being late for something important next week.

Not everyone has to deal with the time change, those who live in Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa don’t observe the time change and this week and am envious of all of them.

But at 2AM this Sunday morning (MST), all of our clocks should be pushed ahead to 3AM, robbing us of an hour of our weekend. (Don’t worry, we get it back on November 3rd.)

Why do we even have daylight saving and standard time changes? We may have Benjamin Franklin to thank. Discovery News says that the idea may have been first suggested in a “1784 essay he wrote that adjusting the clocks in the spring could be a good way to save on candles.” Read the whole story behind daylight saving here.

(Don’t forget that the official spelling is Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight Savings Time.)

You can check the official time int he widget below, or you can always go to Time.gov.
