When do we turn back the clocks?

Having trouble getting out of bed in the morning because it’s so dark? Be patient. Soon you’ll see the sun earlier, because we’re approaching the time to “fall back,” and move our clocks back an hour to Standard Time.

In the U.S., the clocks will be turned back one hour on Nov. 5, at 2:00 a.m. local time, so trick-or-treaters get a little more light on Halloween before the switch. (Mark your calendar, we “spring ahead” an hour on the second Sunday in March.)

If you live in Europe, you’ll likely have already moved your clock back to Standard Time in the wee hours of Sunday, Oct. 29 (it varies by country); in Asia, most countries do not observe the practice. Here is a worldwide breakdown.

Don’t like it? Blame Ben Franklin, who is credited with promoting the practice of falling back and springing ahead as a way to cut down on the use of candles and get people out of bed earlier. Or you could move to one of the U.S. states or territories that doesn’t observe Daylight Saving, including most of Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, according to timeanddate.com.
