When Do We Change the Clocks for Daylight Saving 2013?

Set your clocks ahead an hour on March 10

 

You know the old saying “Fall back, spring forward.” Well, it’s almost time to spring forward. 

We received a reader question asking us on the date Daylight Saving begins this year. 

Well, you ask, Patch answers.

This year we move the clocks overnight on Sunday, March 10. Don’t forget to move your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night (Don’t worry, we’ll remind you again). Officially Daylight Saving is 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Yes, moving the clocks ahead does mean we all lose an hour of sleep, but in return it will be light later in the day. Besides, the lost hour falls on Saturday night, so just sleep in a bit on Sunday before getting up and starting the day with your Patch Newsletter.

Do you have a question you want answered? Ask it in the comment section below and your question could be featured in our next You Ask … Patch Answers. read more
