Daylight Saving Time! Do You Understand Why?

Daylight Saving Time comes on Saturday, November 6th this year. This is the time of the year when you set you clocks backward (not forward) and "gain" an hours sleep.

If you like me your still a little confused because the fall change for Daylight Savings Time used to occur in October. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 extended the Daylight Saving Time (DST) period by starting DST several weeks earlier (second Sunday in March) and ending it one week later (first Sunday in November).

Not all U.S. states and territories observe the confusing daylight saving time ritual. The federal government does not require those in Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands to change their clocks.

Anyway, here is a fun video explaining this phenomenon that confounds us all every year:

So there you have it. Is it clear now? Don't forget to "fall back" Saturday at 2:00 am.
