Daylight Saving Time Ends on Sunday - This Is Why We Have It


When the leaves start changing and the air gets chilly, Daylight Saving Time is almost at an end. The end of Daylight Saving Time is on November 5 and, although we will be gaining an hour of sleep, the sun will also be setting at around 5:30 p.m., which seems wrong - seeing as that is the time that most of us leave work. That morning the sun will rise an hour earlier so be sure to draw the blinds before heading to bed Saturday night unless you want the sun waking you bright and early.

But, with MA attempting to mark the end of Daylight Saving Time, California might move to do the same - and it should.

A recently released report from the University of Virginia that suggests there is an uptick in street crime, especially robbery, when clocks are turned back. "It's weird how it gets dark so early". To ease the change, there are a few measures you can take to help your internal clock manage the adjustment.

But some people may argue that Daylight Saving Time is necessary and makes sense. Daylight Saving Time will begin again Sunday, March 11, 2017. Set clocks ahead one hour. For many years, DST was from the last Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October.


August 8, 2005 - President George W. Bush signs the Energy Policy Act of 2005 into law.

Daylight saving is observed in approximately 70 countries, including most of those in North America and Europe.

Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and most of Arizona don't observe daylight saving time, so there's no need to change the clocks in those places. This position rests on the assumption that there are public-safety benefits associated with the increased light during evening hours associated with daylight-saving time.
