Hey, Danbury! Don't forget to spring ahead before you hit the bed!

This is a friendly reminder that Daylight Saving Time 2023 (note: it is Saving is singular) begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 12, and ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 5.

What does this mean? At 2 a.m. on Sunday, you will lose an hour or spring forward an hour and the correct time will be 3 a.m.  

Could this be the last time we have to adjust our clocks due to Day Light Saving Time? There is a movement to make the madness STOP. 

The Old Farmer's Almanac is following the legislation carefully and reported this week that as of January 2023, 19 states have passed bills to end the practice of switching clocks. "However, the legislation can only go into effect if federal law changes. The Uniform Time Act would need to be amended to allow such a change. In early 2022, a bill to enact permanent Daylight Saving Time unanimously passed in the Senate, but it was not taken up by the House and will now have to be reintroduced in order to have any chance of moving forward."

Visit Farmer's Almanac online to read the latest on which states have passed bills to put a stop to DST changes.

By the way, idea of "saving daylight" was the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin, aka, the 'early to be, early to rise' guy, back in 1784.
