Summer time ends soon – here’s when we ‘fall back’

(KTVX) – We are less than a month away from getting an hour of sleep as summer time ends.

Daylight Saving Time started on Sunday, March 14, when we “jumped forward” and lost an hour of sleep. Turning our watches an hour forward in the spring is supposed to help us save energy and take advantage of the spring sunlight. When summer time starts, the sun rises and sets later.

Over 70 countries participate in daylight Saving Time each year, but the start and end dates vary from one to the other. Sunday, November 7, ends summer time as Americans in observation states set their clocks an hour back. Although the sun will rise a little earlier after we change our clocks, it will also set earlier, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

Are you not a fan of changing clocks twice a year? You are not alone. As summer time rolls around each year, make questions about practice and even suggestions to do away with it.

In March 2021 was there a bipartisan effort called the “Sunshine Protection Act of 2021” who proposed to make summer time permanent, instead of falling back every November.

The legislation was introduced by Sens. Marco Rubio, (R-Fla.); James Lankford, (R-Okla.); Roy Blunt, (R-Mo.); Sheldon Whitehouse, (D-RI); Ron Wyden, (D-Ore.); Cindy Hyde-Smith, (R-Miss.); Rick Scott, (R-Fla.); and Ed Markey, (D-Mass.).

The bill was ultimately referred to the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Trade and has yet to be adopted by Parliament or the Senate.

So for now, Americans who do not live in Hawaii and Arizona, where they do not observe the time changes – will still have to change their clocks twice a year, with summer time ending on November 7th. After we fall afterwards then, we do not have to jump our watches forward again until Sunday the 13th of March.
