Set your clocks back one hour tonight

Fall back this weekend for daylight saving time

Tourneau changes more than 100,000 watches for Daylight Saving Time

Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight, as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end early Sunday morning.

At 2 a.m. local time Sunday, daylight saving time is ending, and it's back to standard time for most people in the United States.

What's more, the study found that on the Monday after Daylight Saving Time starts, there were 2.9 percent fewer assaults compared to the following week.


Commonly referred to as daylight "savings" time, the correct term is actually daylight saving time.

"When you gain an hour of sleep, you wake up in the morning and you just feel better about yourself, you can go about your day a little bit better", said Brown.

Credit - or blame - for the biannual shift goes back to Benjamin Franklin, who published An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light in a 1784 journal after he noticed that people burned candles at night but slept past dawn. This will remain the status quo until March 11, 2018, when clocks will be readjusted once more, this time by "springing forward".


The time change also can bring some less expected problems. In New York City and along the East Coast of the United States the sun will rise at 6:31 a.m. EST. The dates are the last Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October.

August 8, 2005 - President George W. Bush signs the Energy Policy Act of 2005 into law.

Two American states (Arizona and Hawaii) and one Canadian province (Saskatchewan) already have opted out of daylight-saving-time changes, and several USA states are actively considering abandoning the time change, most recently ME and MA.


Many countries near the equator do not adjust their clocks for daylight saving.
