Remember to Turn Your Clocks Back Tonight

Tonight marks the end of Daylight Savings Time in the United States, Canada, and other countries, so we turn are clocks back. Daylight Savings starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. This is a change from past years in which it started on the first Sunday in April and ended on the last Sunday in October. In 2007, the United States, Canada, and some other counties decided to the dates to help businesses. When Daylight Savings Time begins you move your clock ahead one hour. When Daylight Savings Time ends you move your clock back one hour. Do not forget to turn your clock back tonight before you go to bed, if you live in United States and Canada or one of the other countries that also ends Daylight Savings Time tonight.

Daylight Savings Time started being used by several countries in 1916. It however was first suggested by the great American Statesman Benjamin Franklin in 1784.

For my friends in the Philippines, while the United States is on Daylight Savings Time, I am only twelve hours behind your time. Starting tonight I will be thirteen hours behind your time as the United States goes off Daylight Savings Time.
