Here's what you need to know about Daylight Saving Time 2011. First: Daylight Saving Time ends this coming Sunday, Nov. 6. Second: You will set your clock back one hour (spring forward; fall back). Third: It's not "Daylight Savings Time." The proper name is "Daylight Saving Time." The "Saving" is singular!
Daylight Saving Time is an internationally implemented event that aims to reduce energy by extending the period of sunlight to more hours of the day when people are awake. Daylight Saving Time 2012 begins Sunday, March 11, 2012 -- except, of course, in Hawaii and Arizona, the two U.S. states that do not participate in Daylight Saving Time. Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands also do not recognize Daylight Saving Time.
