Bonus Hour Of Sleep

Published: October 15, 2014

You can pick up an extra hour of sleep on Sunday, Nov. 2, when Daylight Saving Time ends. As always, it’s recommended you turn all your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

For future reference, Daylight Saving Time begins each year at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March, so that’s when you move clocks ahead one hour.

Standard Time begins each year at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November when you move clocks back one hour.

In 2015, Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 8 and ends Sunday, Nov. 1

If you like to plan way ahead, the Daylight Saving Time start/end dates through 2017 are:

  • 2016: March 13 and Nov. 6
  • 2017: March 12 and Nov. 5
