Daylight Saving Time 2014: When Do We Change Our Clocks?

What Time Is It Now?

Daylight Saving Time 2014 begins before Easter when days become longer and longer heading closer to the Spring Equinox.

So if you are asking, "When does Daylight Saving Time begin in 2014?" The answer is the day Daylight Saving Time (DST) will begin for Florida is on Sunday March 9, 2014.

The rest of the United States will also turn their clocks forward on March 9, 2014 with the exception of Hawaii and Arizona because those states do not practice Daylight Saving Time.

This means that we lose (not gain) an hour when we turn our clocks ahead an hour to 3:00 a.m. when our clocks reach 2 a.m. on Sunday.

A helpful way to remember whether to set our clocks ahead or behind one hour during the Daylight Saving Time change for Spring 2014 is to "Fall Back" and "Spring Ahead."

Daylight Saving Time 2014 will end on Sunday November 2, 2014.

Is it "Daylight Savings Time" or "Daylight Saving Time"?  The correct term is without the "s" but the added "s" has also become widely used in the United States.
