If this week has you a little run down and you’re feeling like you could use some extra sleep you’re in luck because this weekend you’ll get an extra hour.

Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday. That’s when we “fall back” and set our clocks back one hour as we move back to Standard Time.

Daylight Saving Time dates back to World War I in the United States with the Standard Time Act of 1918.

The part that dealt with changing the clocks was repealed a little more than a year later but some cities and states continued the practice. This led to confusion as some cities had different times during the same time of the year.

So to clear things up the Uniform Time Act was passed in 1966 but not everyone had to adopt Daylight Saving Time. In fact, Hawaii and the state of Arizona still don’t use it to this day.

The sunset on Sunday will be at 5:26 p.m. which is one hour and one minute earlier than the sunset on Saturday.

We’ll continue to see early sunsets until the second Sunday in March which is when we’ll “spring forward” moving back to Daylight Saving Time.
