It’s Time to Spring Forward Again

This Sunday at 2am we start Daylight Saving Time (no ‘s), of course if your like me you will set your clocks ahead before you go to bed on Saturday night.

Have you ever wondered why we change our clocks every spring and summer? It was started back during WWI in order to save electricity, it allows us to take advantage of the later hours of daylight between March and November. The dates that we change our clocks have changed over time as well, it used to be spring forward in April and fall back in October. We now change our clocks in March and November.
