Clocks are turned forward one hour on Sunday, March 13 in most of the United States.

For some, this is the weekend that the effects of losing an hour of sleep due to the change to daylight saving time are felt. For others, this is a happier time because there is an extra hour of sunlight at the end of the day.

This will happen this Sunday in most esUnited States states and territories and for many, this time change will happen automatically in many watches, cell phones, and other gadgets and devices, except those that still depend on us manually winding and setting the time.

In the United States, daylight saving time lasts a total of 34 weeks, from early or mid-March to early November in states that observe it.

In 2022, DST will start on March 13, more than a week before the official start of spring, and will end on November 6.

Under the conditions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, daylight saving time begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November, which represents an extension with respect to previous years.

There are states where the clocks never change

Most of Arizona or all of Hawaii never set their clocks forward or backward. And Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are already in permanent standard time.

Every year, when the rest of us jump ahead an hour, these testates and territories stay on standard time. And when the rest of us back up, they greet us at the same time they have all year long.
