Daylight Saving Time Means “Springing Forward”
It is that time of year again when we have to “spring forward”. This Sunday is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time. This is the time of year when we advance our clocks one hour before we go to bed on Saturday night to be in compliance with the rest of the country.
So whether you love it, hate it or you are completely neutral about the subject, everyone in America, with the exception of Hawaii and Arizona, will be switching their clocks over to Daylight Saving Time. So what does it mean to your schedule if you forget to move your clocks forward one hour Saturday night? It means you will likely be late for church, lunch, the kid’s soccer game or anything else you have planned for Sunday.
When we switch to Daylight Saving Time you actually will end up with less time where you see sunlight in the morning hours, but as the day progresses you get more “daylight” hours into the evening.
Daylight Saving Time was made official by Congress in 1966 when they passed the “Uniform Time Act”. Then in the last several years the change was made to have Daylight Saving Time begin in March. We don’t “fall back” until November.
