12 Instagram Captions About DST Ending To Post After That Extra Hour Of Sleep This Weekend


Get ready to change your clocks and to become super confused about what exactly you're changing your clocks to: daylight saving time is coming to an end on Sunday, Nov. 4. While daylight saving time always makes everyone feel exhausted and groggy, the ending has one upside, and that's that we gain an hour (spring forward, fall back, remember?). That means one extra hour of sleep, of brunch, of binge-watching The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix... whatever you want. Still, even getting an extra hour can't stop everyone from complaining about this time of year. If you want to cash in on that relatable content, you should post a photo on Instagram that day, along with a funny daylight saving time ending caption to make all of your followers laugh.

Plus, this might be one of your last chances to post something (fingers crossed!). As time goes on, more and more people are becoming increasingly frustrated with the concept of daylight saving time - states like New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island have all tried to keep daylight saving year round, and Florida even tried to pass the "Sunshine Protection Act" to do the same. Daylight saving time has been around since 1966, after the Standard Time Act created standard time zones throughout the U.S. DST was originally introduced in an effort to preserve the daylight, and the U.S. Department of Transportation maintains that it helps save energy, prevent traffic injuries, and even prevents crime.

However, many now argue that DST actually makes people sick, does not save energy at all, and costs a lot of money. In August, it was revealed that the European Union had backed the idea of ending DST throughout European countries for these reasons and more.

So, if this way of thinking keeps catching on, you better post those funny Instagram captions now!
