Daylight Savings Time: Fall Back, Fall Back

Head on over to the 2007 version of this post here: Daylight Saving Time.

The last few months have seemingly flown by for me. Work has been keeping me good and busy which likely plays a big part in how fast time is seeming to go by. Halloween is a mere three days away, and you know what that means. This Sunday is the big day for everyone that obeys the rules of daylight savings time to set their clocks back another hour, and everyone knows what that means, an extra hours sleep, yay!

An interesting little tid-bit about this years daylight savings time fall back event comes compliments of the consumerist. Apparently 2006 will be the last year we fall back BEFORE Halloween:

Fall Back Day is Sunday and this here is the very last Halloween that will fall after the end of Daylight Savings Time. Why? The Energy Policy Act of 2005, extends Daylight Savings Time by 4 weeks! The result? An estimated energy savings of 1% nationally.

So don’t forget! Set your clocks back an hour this Sunday, at 2am to be exact. You wouldn’t want to end up showing up for work an hour early, though it could earn you some brownie points with the boss man.
