The time change begins on Sunday, March 10, at 2 a.m., when clocks are moved forward by one hour. :(

Why 2 a.m.?

The time change is set for 2 a.m. because it was decided to be the least disruptive time of day. Moving time forward or back an hour at that time doesn’t change the date, which avoids confusion, and most people are asleep, or if people do work on a Sunday, it’s usually later than 2 a.m.

Do all states observe daylight saving time?

Hawaii and most of Arizona don’t observe the time change. U.S. territories that don’t go on daylight saving time include American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

i really thing daylight savings time is useless anymore, it was created to help when everyone was farming but that just is not the case anymore and to be honest to a farmer they dont care what time it is they just get the job done.

I hate it when they do this. Why can't they leave it one way or another?

I always had heard that daylight savings was for energy saving reasons. But I'm not sure if that is true. I think it is possible that in the hotter months if people get their days started earlier and business and shopping centers open earlier, they are taking advantage of the cool morning. Slightly less AC every day which probably adds up across the whole population.

Or may be completely meaningless since everyone will just run their AC more at home when they get back from work.

Ah my favorite time of the year. I'm usually more energetic during this time for some reason. Waking up with little time to spare, but in the afternoon it's hours of fun time with more energy.

With the advance of time by an hour, my inner dracula exclaims "Agh! My eyes! The light is too bright for my eyes!" every year around this time. :D

I always tend to get all excited when we turn the clocks back, but when they move forward, I dread it. I have limited time in my day anyway between work, running my super small business, family and school that losing an hour right now is kind of a big bummer.

Yeah --- those who want more light, can just get themselves up with the sun.

It just gives the politicians an extra hour on the golf course (or "massage parlor").
