Daylight Savings Time (DST) begins on Sunday, March 9. Setting your clocks forward one hour and getting up one hour earlier might be worth it.

According to IBN on March 6, Krispy Kreme based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina is celebrating Daylight Savings Time by offering a free original glazed doughnut to guests at participating U.S. and Canadian locations on Sunday, March 9 starting at 5 a.m.

According to the Krispy Kreme website, you can get a free doughnut just by stopping by.

Krispy Kreme wants to celebrate the beginning of Daylight Savings Time with its customers during the "Lose An Hour Gain A Doughnut!" promotion. No purchase is necessary for the free doughnut, but since you are there, there is no reason why you can't buy a box of a dozen to take home with you.

Krispy Kreme thinks this is a sweet reason to wake up an hour earlier.

This promotion is not valid in Uncasville, Connecticut, Puerto Rico and six Texas cities: Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, Laredo, San Marcos and McAllen.

Krispy Kreme has a Facebook page to get customers ready for their free doughnut. Thousands of Facebook users said they would be taking part.

Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday at 2 a.m. That’s the time clocks get pushed forward an hour. While you’ll have to get by with less sleep, you also can get a free doughnut, and a longer afternoon.
