Daylight Savings Time–Time to Spring Forward

Daylight Savings Time is the day when we adjust our clocks to move an extra hour of daylight to the evening. It begins the second Sunday of March. Many people turn the clock ahead one hour before they go to sleep on Saturday night because 2 a.m. will become 3 a.m. early in the morning of March 11.

Arizona, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico stay on standard time all year. Also, countries near the equator stay on standard time. European countries have Daylight Savings Time, but their starting and ending dates are different.

So you might want to go to bed earlier than usual this week to prepare yourself. Many people will lose an hour of sleep and be tired on Monday morning. If your clock says 9:00 when you go to bed, people who live in a Daylight Savings Time zone will move it ahead to 10:00.
