Daylight Saving Time Returns This Weekend, So You’ll Lose An Hour of Sleep
This is the one weekend out of the year that many East Texans and American’s dread, time change weekend. We fear this weekend mainly because we’re going to lose an hour of precious sleep thanks to Daylight Saving Time being enacted.
Sunday morning at 2 a.m. clocks throughout the U.S., Europe and other parts of the world will be advanced one hour to allow for more daylight in the evening hours than in the morning. This practice has been going on since the 1970s but was originally proposed back in 1895.
Upset at first, you’ll get used to it in about a week or so and be thankful that there is an extra hour of daylight once getting home, fixing dinner, getting the kids’ homework done so you can send them outside for a while! So don’t forget to set your clock ahead one hour when going to bed Saturday night or you’ll miss Sunday school and church all together!
