Fall Time Change: When Does Daylight Savings Time 2014 End?

Daylight Savings Time 2014 ends after Halloween when days become shorter and shorter heading closer to the Winter Solstice.

So if you are asking, "When does Daylights 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 2 a.m. on Sunday.

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

Daylight Savings Time resumes again on Sunday, March 8, 2015.

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