Daylight Saving Time. It's finally over, people. Almost.

This weekend, it's time to turn the clocks back, and for Americans looking forward to a long, dark winter, it's a thing of beauty. Okay, that's no one.

Hey, at least you get an extra hour of sleep tonight! Unless you have kids or pets who have no idea what's up, in which chase, forget that too.

Turn the Clocks Back

Anyway, Daylight Saving Time remains inherently confusing for some people, which is why is THG is here to break it down for you and get you through it.

See helpful graphic above. BOOM.

If that's not sufficient, here's everything you need to know about the end Daylight Saving Time 2013, and what to expect with Daylight Saving Time 2014:

  1. Daylight Saving Time officially began on Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m.
  2. Time "springs" forward then and "falls" back one hour now (above).
  3. Set your clocks ahead an hour before you go to bed this evening.
  4. OR stay up until 2 a.m., turn the clocks to 1 a.m. and hit the sack.
  5. Your iPhone should do this automatically. Your oven? No dice.
  6. This could mean an extra hour of sleep Sunday morning. Nice!
  7. Unless you have kids who just sleep the same amount regardless.
  8. At least it starts getting dark at 4:30 on the East Coast now. Yay?
  9. The concept of Daylight Saving Time dates way back to 1895.
  10. It was recently extended across the U.S. to save energy use.
  11. In 2014, Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 9.
  12. If you can't figure out how to change the effing clock in your car, don't worry. Just make a mental (or Post-It) note that it's an hour fast until 3/9.
  13. Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico residents: Disregard.
