“Fall BACK” – Sunday Morning, November 6th

Spring Forward – Fall Back.

Daylight saving time will end, meaning we’ll “fall back” by moving our clocks back, an hour, at 2:00am Sunday, November 6th.

The change shifts more daylight hours into the morning.

Not EVERY state recognized daylight saving time – meaning there’s no need to change the clocks in Arizona and Hawaii.  

For almost everyone else, it’s time to change the clocks before bed on Sunday and get ready for dark afternoons.  It will stay that way until Sunday, March 12th, 2023 when daylight saving time starts again and we move clocks ahead one hour.

That twice-a-year ritual of changing clocks back and forth dates back to World War I, as the U.S. looked to conserve energy to assist in the war effort.  

The practice wasn’t made permanent in the U.S. until 1973 – after President Richard Nixon signed the Emergency Daylight Saving Time Energy Conservation Act.  In 2005, the Uniform Time Act tweaked that schedule by setting the start of daylight saving time to the second Sunday of March and the end on the first Sunday of November.
