Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, Nov. 2

Don’t forget to move your clocks backward by one hour when you go to bed on the evening of Saturday, Nov. 1, as Daylight Saving Time (DST) comes to an end.

This annual “falling back” takes place about a week later than it used to due to a law passed in 2005 by the U.S. Congress. Instead of beginning on the first Sunday of April and ending on the last Sunday of October, it began on the second Sunday of March and concluded on the first Sunday of November starting in 2007.

Many consumer safety organizations also suggest using this annual event as a reminder to change out the batteries in your home’s smoke detectors. Batteries should be tested monthly for functionality, and replaced yearly.

Daylight Saving Time officially ends this year at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014.
