Set your clocks back one hour tonight

Set your clocks back one hour tonight

And, if you're out for the night, some bars and restaurants stay open that extra hour, which means another hour of fun, but you'll have to check with your local establishments.

The shift means it's lighter earlier in the morning and darker earlier in the evening. By comparison, The Denver Post noted research showing about 5 percent fewer heart attacks reported in America the Monday morning after clocks fall back.

We need to put daylight-saving-time changes to bed.

While Thunder Bay, Ont. became the first Canadian city to use Daylight Saving Time in 1908, Germany was the first country to introduce Daylight Saving Time during the First World War on April 30, 1916.

Everyone is about to get one more hour of sleep this weekend.

We don't go back to daylight saving until Sunday, March 11, 2018, about a week before spring begins. The evidence of such benefits is mixed, but if found to be widespread may help make the case for a time-change-free future that happens to make daylight-saving time the default (which would be equivalent to everyone permanently shifting their clocks one time zone to the east). One from 2011 that followed people in IN, (which didn't uniformly observed daylight saving time before 2006) found that energy usage actually increased with daylight saving time. In New York City and along the East Coast of the United States the sun will rise at 6:31 a.m. EST.

Daylight saving actually wasn't signed into law until 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson made it an official practice.

1966 - The Uniform Time Act of 196 establishes the system of uniform Daylight Saving Time throughout the United States.

Twice year, in most of the 50 states anyway, millions of Americans go through the chore of adjusting their clocks and watches either forward or backward.

1974-1975 - Congress extends DLS in order to save energy during the energy crisis.
