And after this year's bitterly cold, snowy, icy, never-ending, downright harsh winter, spring can't come soon enough! The "time" has finally come! In just a few days, millions of Americans will "spring forward." The annual clock adjusting ritual is almost here!

Daylight Saving Time 2014

For most of the United States, Daylight Saving Time (DST) occurs on the second Sunday in March. At 2:00 a.m. local time on March 9, 2014, most Americans will move their clocks, watches, alarm clocks and handy-dandy gadgets forward one hour. While that means one less hour of sleep, it also means we are one-step closer to warmer weather!

DST not only makes better use of daylight, but is believed to reduce traffic accidents and reduce energy consumption as well.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be servin' up FREE donuts in honor of Daylight Saving Time 2014 so be sure to stop in and enjoy a sweet treat to eat!

And please remember - today is also Check Your Batteries Day. And just in case you're all tuckered out and need a little snooze, National Napping Day is tomorrow! And speaking of spring - be sure to check out 40 Spring Cleaning Tips: Get Your Home in Tip-Top Shape for Spring.
