Turn Clocks Back For The End Of Daylight Saving Time

It’s been a tradition in most parts of the world since the early 1900’s to try and save daylight in the summer by taking an hour off of the morning and putting it in the evening. What has become known as Daylight Saving Time was first recognized in the United States in 1918 during World War I.

It was in 1966 when Congress made an official declaration of daylight saving time and established the beginning date as the last Sunday in April and ending on the last Sunday in October. Individual states were given the chance to opt out of daylight saving time if they chose to do so. Only two states still choose not to observe daylight saving time -- Arizona and Hawaii.

Four years ago, Congress passed an energy bill that set daylight saving time to begin on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. Tomorrow is November 1st, and that means it's time to reset our clocks. Before you go to bed on this Halloween night make sure you turn back the clock by an hour to adjust for the change to standard time.
