When Do We ‘Fall Back’ to Standard Time and Change the Clocks?

It’s almost time to think about…time. Again.

It’s almost time to think about…time. Again.

That’s because it is almost time to “fall back” by turning all our clocks back an hour, as Daylight Saving Time 2016 comes to an end.

DST officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016, which means most people will want to move the hands on their battery-powered clocks back an hour (and “gain” an hour) before they go to sleep on Saturday night, Nov. 5.

Most computers, cell phones, tablets and other electronic devices should automatically adjust to the time change.
