Day Light Savings Time 2012 Ends This Weekend


Happy Halloween! Naturally, many people think that with Halloween and the changing of the seasons comes the changing of their clocks at the beginning of Fall 2012.  But this is not the case.  Day Light Savings Time 2012 ends this weekend.  


It is true however, that a helpful 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."
 
 
Halloween 2012 does not mean the end of 2012 Daylight Savings Time.  2012 Daylight Savings Time occurs after Halloween 2012 when days become shorter and shorter heading closer to the Winter Solstice.
 

So if you are asking, "When does daylight savings 2012 time end?" "Do we change clocks on Halloween?"  The answer is the date Daylight Savings Time (DST) will end for Florida is on Sunday November 4, 2012.

This is one week before Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, which is on Sunday November 11, 2012 but will be observed this year on Monday November 12, 2012 . 



The rest of the United States will also turn their clocks back on November 4, 2012 with the exception of Hawaii and Arizona because those states do not practice Daylight Savings Time.
 

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

Daylight Savings Time 2013 begins again on Sunday March 10, 2013 and will end Sunday November 3, 2013.
