Daylight Savings Time

Do not forget to set back the clocks on Saturday night, Nov. 6, for the end of Daylight Savings Time.

The United States and Canada are the only countries that observe Daylight Savings Time although some states, like Arizona, do not observe the change at all.

Daylight Savings Time was created to give working adults an extra hour of daylight to do their outside working activities. In theory, if they wake up an hour earlier, they get off work an hour earlier to have more daylight time.
