Fall Back For The End Of Daylight Saving Time!

Two American states (Arizona and Hawaii) and one Canadian province (Saskatchewan) already have opted out of daylight-saving-time changes, and several USA states are actively considering abandoning the time change, most recently ME and MA. One possible explanation: Making us all spend more time awake during the hottest parts of the day may lead to more air conditioning usage. It has been reported that MA is now on its way to joining these areas and making changing the clocks a thing of the past.

What's more, there is evidence to suggest daylight saving time takes a toll on TV ratings.

If California made a decision to join the list of areas that do not choose to follow, some people could make the argument that it would add more darkness to our mornings, and could be a risk for early-morning commuters and even students who walk to school, as well.

Sunday, November 5, 2017 - Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 am.

As we prepare to move our clocks back an hour and revert to standard time, the case can be made that it's time to put the lights out on the time-change practice altogether.

Matthew Brown of Lexington, however, said he appreciates the extra hour of sleep.

How can the transition be eased for minimal effect? After that, days will get slightly longer - about two more minutes of daylight each day.

"The autumn transition is often popularized as a gain of 1 [hour] of sleep but there is little evidence of extra sleep on that night", Ms. Harris said in the study.

Some believe is cheaper to "fall back" than to "spring forward".

Beginning in 2007, Daylight Saving Time starts in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
