When Does Daylight Saving Time 2013 End?

It's almost time to turn back any clocks you have to do yourself!

Written By Rebecca McCarthy

Daylight Saving Time in 2013 ends in the United States at 2 a.m. Nov. 3.

You will be setting your clock back one hour, following the adage of “spring forward, fall back.” The “extra” hour gives you a chance to catch up on the sleep you lost in March when the clocks moved forward and Daylight Saving Time began.

  • What will you do with that "extra" hour of your life? Tell us in the comments section below.
The federal government doesn’t require states to adopt Daylight Saving Time. New York, like most of the rest of the United States, observes it. (Indiana used to ignore Daylight Savings but has gotten on board.) 

Its origin is from World War II: in an effort to save resources, the U.S. made daylight saving time mandatory for the whole country. And it was observed the entire year.

Some studies have shown that extending Daylight Saving Time results in a reduction in energy consumption; other studies suggest just the opposite.

What to do with the extra hour, Lanning? That's easy to answer. Watch the first episode of Downton Abbey's fourth season which premiered on British television yesterday. How to see a copy without flying to London? Sorry, I don't know the answer to that.
