Daylight Saving Time 2016: When to change the clocks (hint: not Oct 30th)

If you live in the United States, remember to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday, November 6th, 2016, a full week after many other nations. Why is it later this year?

Daylight Saving Time (sometimes erroneously referred to as “Daylight Savings Time”) ends at 2am on the first Sunday in November in the United States due to a change in an energy bill signed by President Bush in 2005.

Previously, the change had occurred on the last Sunday in October.

Daylight Saving Time was born in the Standard Time Act of 1918 but was repealed in 1919 despite a veto from President Woodrow Wilson. The Uniform Act of 1966 re-implemented DST, but  allowed states to opt out. The Arizona, Hawaii, and the Eastern Time Zone portion of Indiana have chosen not to implement Daylight Saving Time.
