Don’t forget to set clocks forward an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday morning to mark the beginning of Daylight Saving Time or else risk showing up for church and other activities late.
Some states began observing Daylight Saving Times early as 1918, and the practice became mandatory yearlong in the United States during World War II as a way to conserve resources for the war effort. Residents now spring forward in March and fall back in November.
The country will fall back once again Nov. 2.
