Daylight saving time is coming early this year

It’s hard to believe but daylight saving time is set to arrive this weekend.

This will be the earliest start for the annual rite of springtime, three weeks ahead of what it used to be.

Sometime late Saturday night before you go to bed or when you get up on Sunday morning, clocks need to be set one hour ahead.

Daylight saving time started March 11 last year.

The purposes of daylight saving time are to make better use of daylight in the warm months. The argument that it saves energy due to less use of electrical lights has been disputed with some saying that in warm areas there’s actually more energy consumption due to air conditioner use in the hot summer months

Nonetheless, it’s time to spring ahead this weekend.

Daylight saving time is here.
