When Does the Time Change For The End of Daylight Savings? Here's Your Answer

Call it a bi-yearly annoyance, or call it a constant reminder that life is fleeting and we're all getting old: There's no getting around it, Daylight Savings Time has come to an end yet again. That's right — even though it feels like we were all just ringing in 2014 like, a month ago, somehow the year is nearly at its end, and we've once again met the dreaded day where we must all remember to set our clocks back exactly one hour.

But, when exactly should we make sure to do this? I don't know about you, but I'm generally not the type to really remember to do something like this until it's the last possible moment. So, because I care about you all and don't want any of you to be like me, here's the very official rundown of Daylight Saving Time's end:

  • It will happen in the early hours of Nov. 2, which is a Sunday
  • This is good news, because of what comes next!
  • We're going to be moving our clocks back one hour
  • Which means, yes — everyone gets an extra hour of sleep between Saturday and Sunday!
  • The official time that clocks will move back is 2:00 AM on Nov. 2
  • But it'll probably be easier to just remember to set clocks back on the night of Nov. 1 before bed, or first thing in the morning on Nov. 2

And that's it! Should be easy enough, right? And, once you do all this stuff, you won't have to worry about Daylight Savings Time coming back to haunt us all until next year, on March 8 – but that's for future you to deal with. So, present you: Totally kick back and relax now. You've earned it.
