Though Spring doesn’t officially start until March 20, it will begin feeling like Spring this Sunday as we move the clock ahead one hour – also known as daylight savings time.
The good news is, there will be more evening daylight hours. The bad news is though, you will be losing a hour of sleep.
Daylight savings time begins at 2 AM on Sunday, March 10, which means there is technically no 2:00 am this Sunday – the clock jumps from 1:59 AM straight to 3 AM.
Each year we lose an hour of sleep on the second Sunday in March, and get it back the first Sunday in November when the clocks are set back an hour.
Fire departments also remind residents to use the time to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. TLS.
I guess I will have to learn an extra hour on shabbos to make up for the loss of 1 hour on motzei shabbos….
Why do schools start on 10:00 Sunday & lose 1 hour of learning, but don’t start 8:00 when they change the clock back?
BTW, it’s not called Daylight SavingS Time… it’s called Daylight SAVING Time (leave off the extra “s” by saving”s”)
