It's Time to "Fall Back" This Weekend!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with THE TEMPLE TEAM

It's THIS WEEKEND! Saturday night going into Sunday, to be exact. And, like the old saying goes, we "Spring Forward" and "Fall Back"

So ... this Sunday morning with the exception of a few areas that do not observe this tradition you will gain one extra hour of sleep!

Do you know "why" we do this twice per year? It's known as "Daylight Saving Time" and it all began when Ben Franklin came up with the idea but wasn't formally observed until around World War I when the countries that were at war began setting their clocks back to save on coal usage. Things reverted back to "Daylight Standard Time" after the war during peace time but was once again observed during World War II and has been a tradition ever since.

Today, more than 70 countries participate in this semi-annual tradition of "changing your clocks"!  

So ... it's ok to hit the "snooze" button for one extra hour this Sunday!

Are you looking for a NEW HOME?  Do you have a HOME TO SELL?

The Temple Team can help you with all of your Real Estate Needs!

Hi Kent, I hate to see that come; it gets dark so early here in Williamsburg when we switch back to easter standard time.

Thanks for the interesting reminder.  Sad but true.  You got it right Daylight Saving Time  (not Savings) and I am as guilty as the next for saying it incorrectly.  Have a great week and enjoy the extra hour of sleep this weekend.

Was not aware it was coming this weekend, thanks for the heads up. I use the alarm clock on my phone so it still wakes me up at the proper time, hopefully I'll feel extra rested! Have a great week!
