As the leaves change color and the air gets crisper, it’s a sure sign that autumn is in full swing. With the changing of seasons comes an important reminder – the end of Daylight Saving Time! On November 5, 2023, we will set our clocks back by one hour, officially marking the return to Standard Time.
Why ‘Fall Back’?
Daylight Saving Time (DST) is a practice where we adjust our clocks forward by one hour in the spring and set them back by one hour in the fall. The concept is simple – we “spring forward” in March to make better use of natural daylight during the longer days of spring and summer, and in November, we “fall back” to return to Standard Time as the days become shorter.
What to Do:
On the night of Saturday, November 4, 2023, before you head to bed, remember to set your clocks back by one hour. This simple action will ensure that you’re in sync with the new time schedule.
This is also an excellent time to check and replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. It’s a small step that can make a big difference in your safety.
Daylight Saving Time is a timeless tradition that helps us make the most of daylight throughout the year. So, on Sunday, November 5, 2023, remember to set your clocks back, enjoy the extra hour, and embrace the coziness of autumn as we transition into the Standard Time zone.
