At 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 6th clocks shifted back for most Americans.  Daylight-saving time (DST) ended in 2022. And if you haven’t already, it’s time to “fall-back” by turning your clocks back an hour. 

Your phone should have updated on its own. But be sure and check the clock in your car and any old-style clocks on the wall.

Daylight-saving time ended and a lot of people are going to miss the extra sunlight experience.

Fall-back during the World Wars

 70+ countries, across the globe, observe daylight-saving time. This is a practice that started during World War I. And now it seems the momentum is growing to end the practice.

Daylight-saving time ended and a lot of people are going to miss the extra sunlight experience. 

Daylight-saving time was first introduced by Germany during World War I in 1916. It was a measure to conserve energy and allow more usable hours of daylight.

The U.K., France, and the U.S. quickly adopted the practice.  

During World War II, in 1942, DST was again emphasized, as a year-round practice. But it all got confusing when states and regions were free to choose their time changes.
