Set your clocks ahead or Spring forward one hour during. Spring Forward. In 2013. This occurs on Sunday, March 10, 2013

History of DST

Benjamin Franklin first suggested Daylight Saving Time in 1784, but modern DST was not proposed until 1895 when an entomologist from New Zealand, George Vernon Hudson, presented a proposal for a two-hour daylight saving shift to the Wellington Philosophical Society.

Also remember to replace your batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

Thanks for the reminder on replacing the batteries in smoke detectors. Some of the United States don't recognize daylight savings and may need to use another reminder for this.

All the best in March 2013 to you.

Jeff and Heather, thanks for the reminder to change my batteries in my smoke detectors & carbon monoxide one as well.  Really hate to lose an hour of sleep, but the trade off is more light at the end of the day!

I for one wish they would just pick a time either forward or backward and leave it alone.
