This weekend we spring ahead for Daylight Saving. Finally! All the clocks turn ahead 1 hour Saturday into Sunday at 2am. But why is it always 2am?
It would make sense to do it at midnight since that’s when the say changes right? Well the reason it happens later in the night at 2am is because most people aren’t awake at that hour to notice it. By waiting until 2 a.m. the idea is that most people who work in the weekend with early shifts will still be in bed and most bars and restaurants will already be closed.
The good news is we get that extra hour of sunshine now! If you have kids… good luck with their sleep patterns. Maybe an extra nap this weekend.
