Looking forward to Daylight Savings Time
They will have the correct time when you awaken Sunday morning.
That it started during World War I and so has been around over 100 years? According to the aforementioned LiveScience article, Daylight Saving Time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin so that people could use that extra hour of daylight, rather than having to waste energy on using indoor lighting after dark.
It's a practice that has been followed for a long time, but there also is increasing resistance to it. States have the right to opt out of the time change. They wouldn't be gaining, or losing, many daylight hours by observing the clock change.
Daylight Saving Time is a good time to check - and if needed change - the batteries in your smoke detectors around the house. And then in 2007, DST was again extended into November with the idea to allow children to go trick-or-treating in more daylight. Other non-observers are the American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The stock, one of the 30 components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, closed almost 4.3% lower at $94.36 a share. Several of the agents were armed, while others were pulling large black roller bags as they entered the building.
The energy crisis ended in 1976 and the DST schedule in the United States was revised a few times from 1987 to 2006.
It's Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight Savings Time.
By setting the clocks back in winter, Brits get an earlier sunrise and earlier sunset. The shift moves one hour of daylight to the evening from the morning.
In 1966, Congress approved the Uniform Time Act, which included a requirement that clocks be set ahead one hour beginning at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday in April and turned back one hour at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday in October. This reminder to Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® comes from Energizer, your local fire department and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
