Don’t forget to ALTER YOUR CLOCKS!……for Daylight Saving Time!
– it begins on the last Sunday in March.
– it ends on the last Sunday in October.
“Daylight Saving Time” allows us to use less energy in lighting our homes by taking advantage of the longer and later daylight hours (ie so get gardening folks!).
The phrase “Spring forward, Fall back” helps us remember how Daylight Saving Time affects the clocks.
- SPRING FORWARD:-
On the last Sunday in March, we set our clocks forward 1 hour ahead of Standard Time.
- FALL BACK:-
On the last Sunday in October, we set our clocks back 1 hour. Thus returning to Standard Time.
