Daylight Saving Time in 2024: When you should adjust your clocks & watches


Recommended Posts

As the calendar turns to March, the anticipation of longer daylight hours is palpable. The onset of daylight saving time in 2024 is a significant event that affects millions of Americans. This annual ritual, which begins on Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m. local time, involves adjusting clocks forward by one hour, effectively “springing ahead” into the new season.

 

The impact of this time adjustment is far-reaching. It not only prompts clock changes across households and businesses but also contributes to less sleep in the days following the switch. Yet, the reward is a later sunset, providing more hours to bask in the sun’s glow. This shift is particularly noticeable in cities on the easternmost edge of each time zone, where sunset times are already being recorded between 5:30 and 5:45 p.m. local time.

 

However, the concept of daylight saving time is not without controversy. The Sunshine Protection Act, which aims to make daylight saving time permanent, is gaining momentum. Despite unanimous support from the Senate in 2022, the bill has yet to pass the House. The proposed change has sparked a national debate, with some advocating for the elimination of the biannual clock adjustment.

 

As we prepare to “fall back” on Sunday, November 3, at 2 a.m., gaining an extra hour of sleep and welcoming earlier sunrises and sunsets, the conversation around daylight saving time continues.
