Daylight Saving Time Ends this Weekend

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Everyone (except Arizona and Hawai’i residents) will enjoy an extra hour of sleep this weekend as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end.

Whether you call it Daylight Saving or Savings Time or even Daylight Time, don’t forget to set back your clock 1 hour Saturday night at bedtime or, as the government says, rise at 2 a.m. Sunday and do it.

In the United States, daylight saving time was first used in 1918 when a bill introduced the idea of a seasonal time shift. It lasted seven months before the bill was repealed. During World War II, President Franklin Roosevelt re-established the idea of daylight saving time. It was called “War Time.”

It is still used as a way to save energy.
