Spring forward – Daylight Saving Time begins for 2017

March 10, 2017

Daylight Saving Time for 2017 starts on Sunday, March 12, at 2 a.m. To wake up to the correct time, set your clocks forward an hour before retiring on Saturday night. The bad part is we lose an hour of sleep on Sunday morning. The good part is we get more daylight to do stuff and the hours of daylight will be getting longer.

The longest day of the year comes on June 21, the first day of summer. After that, the slow decrease in minutes of daylight per day leads inevitably to the shortest day of the year and first day of winter on December 21. By then it will be getting dark pretty early since Daylight Saving Time for 2017 ends on November 5.
