Change Your Clocks Tonight For Day Light Savings Time 2012

What Time Is It Now?

COCOA BEACH, Florida -- Daylight Savings Time 2012 begins overnight tonight.  The best way to remember whether to set our clocks ahead or behind one hour during the daylight savings time is to "Fall Back" and "Spring Ahead."

If you are asking, "When does daylight savings time begin?"  The answer is the date Daylight Savings Time (DST) will begin for Florida is on Sunday March 11, 2012.

The rest of the United States will also turn their clocks forward on Sunday March 11, 2012 with the exception of Hawaii and Arizona because those states do not practice Daylight Savings Time.

This means that we lose (not gain) an hour when we push our clocks forward an hour to 3:00 a.m. when our clocks reach 1:59 a.m. on Sunday.

Although we lose an extra hour of sleep, 2012 Spring Breakers and 2012 Daytona Beach Bike Week goers can rest at ease that an hour will not be lost at the local bars in Cocoa Beach, Florida as a result of the time change.

Daylight Savings Time 2012 will end on November 4, 2012.

When Does Daylight Savings Time 2014 Begin?

I believe the real reason we started this was to save energy by making the most of day light hours. It's actually true and save lot's a dollars.
