Don’t forget to set clocks back an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday morning to mark the end of Daylight Saving Time or else risk showing up for church and other activities early … and lose a free hour of sleep.
Some states began observing Daylight Saving Times early as 1918, and the practice became mandatory yearlong in the United States during World War II as a way to conserve resources for the war effort. Residents now spring forward in March and fall back in November.
The country will spring forward once again March 9.
