Daylight Savings Time officially begins at 2 am tomorrow, March 11. So remember to set your clock ahead 1 hour tonight before you go to bed. We switch back to standard time on Sunday, November 12.

Yes, this means for those of you headed out for a night of revelry, that you have to go home an hour early — provided you’re out that late.

But come November you will regain that hour of fun time, and an extra hour of sleep time.

An interesting note from National Geographic on Daylight Savings Time: “The federal government doesn’t require U.S. states or territories to observe daylight saving time, which is why residents of ArizonaHawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands won’t need to change their clocks this weekend.”
