Day Light Savings Time 2014 Ends After 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 2014.  But this is not the case. 

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 2014 does not mean the end of 2014 Daylight Savings Time.  Daylight Savings Time occurs after Halloween when days become shorter and shorter heading closer to the Winter Solstice. 

So if you are asking, "When does daylight savings 2014 time end?" "Do we change clocks before Halloween?"  The answer is the date Daylight Savings Time (DST) will end for Florida is on Sunday, November 2, 2014.

The rest of the United States will also turn their clocks back on November 2, 2014 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 resumes again on Sunday, March 8, 2015.
