Time to spring forward: Set clocks ahead Sunday
Don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour this weekend. Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 9.
Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, Nov. 2.
Daylight Saving Time is the practice of advancing our clocls during the lighter months so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less (per Wikipedia). The United States started it in 1918.
Why do we lose this hour of sleep in the spring, only to gain it in the fall? Proponents wanted to get more use out of afternoon daylight and suggest it saves energy and promotes business and leisure activities. Opponents say it's too disruptive.
