WASHINGTON DC -We spring ahead this weekend with Daylight Saving Time.
Daylight is the practice of moving the clocks forward one hour during the spring & summer months, and changing them back again in the fall & winter months.
The goal is to make better use of natural daylight.
To remember, the expression “spring ahead, fall back” is often noted.
We will lose one hour of asleep this weekend, when we spring ahead at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 14.
We will gain an hour of sleep when we fall back on Sunday, November 7 at 2 a.m.
While Daylight Saving Time idea can trace its roots back to Benjamin Franklin, the United States Congress in 1918 passed the Standard Time Act, which established the time zones and created Daylight Saving Time.
