Starting on Sunday, the sun will set an hour later, which means you'll have an extra hour of daylight in the evening.
That's because Daylight Saving Time officially begins at 2 a.m. Sunday. Be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour.
The change also means the sun will rise an hour later in the morning. That will make it dark outside when many people wake up to go to work or school.
This brings up some questions for our Patch readers.
What do you plan to do with that extra hour of evening sunshine?
Will you hike jog Mile Square Park? Lounge a little longer at the Starbucks on Brookhurts? Get in a round of golf at Mile Square Golf Course
How about waking up to darkness outside? Does that bother you? Will it affect your commute? Is the 405 better before the sun comes up?
And, although most computers and cell phones adjust automatically, some clocks need to be hand set. Who does that in your house?
For the record, Ben Franklin first suggested shifting the clocks to save on candles, according to Discovery, but no one took him up on his idea at the time.
The first official national time shift wasn’t until 1918. Then the United States stopped the practice, started again during World War II for energy conservation reasons, stopped when the war was over and re-started with the Uniform Time Act in 1966.
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 lengthened daylight saving to eight months instead of six months.
Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time.
