It's hard to believe it's that time of year again - time to move the clocks! Along with a busy summer season, warmer weather and longer days, another Daylight Saving Time (DST), incorrectly referred to as Daylight Savings Time, is coming to an end.
Each fall, many Americans will move the clocks back an hour while every spring, the clocks are moved one hour ahead.
When Does Daylight Saving Time End?
Daylight Saving Time officially ends on the first Sunday in November at 2:00 a.m. local time.

While adjusting all the clocks in the house, car, office as well as all those handy dandy gadgets is a bit of an inconvenience, moving the clocks back an hour does have a silver lining. We get one extra hour of sleep!
And just in case you have trouble remembering which direction to move the clocks, a saying from long ago may help – “Spring Forward, Fall Back.” And while you are adjusting all the clocks, now is the perfect time to change all the batteries on the smoke detectors and other life-saving devices in your home and office.
And just think – it’ll be no time before we change the clocks again!
