(WXYZ) - It's that time of year again! We gained an extra hour when Daylight Saving Time, or DST for short, ended early this morning.
Sincece 2007, Daylight Saving Time begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
There are theories stating the time change was meant to benefit farmers by providing more daylight time to harvest their crops. Another possible reason is to save energy, as with the 2005 Energy Act.
However, because of technology like computers and cell phones, not as many people have to remember to change their clocks when daylight savings time ends, because these forms of technology will automatically adjust.
So, what are you going to do with that extra hour this weekend? Just make sure you don't show up an hour early to any activities or events on Sunday.
