Fall Back: Day Light Saving Time Ends
Fall Back One Hour! Sunday, November 5, 2017 is the official time change, so before you go to bed on Saturday, November 4, 2017 be sure to set your clocks back one hour. I know most of us now have phones, computers, etc. that auto adjust for this, but the manual clocks and other types of clocks that don’t you will want to set them back one hour before you go to bed. If you don’t you will be early to church. This should also mean we get one extra hour of sleep too.
Fall Back Day Light Saving Time Ends
We official change our clocks back one hour at 2 a.m. Changing our clocks back an hour marks the end of Day Lights Saving time. When the clock strikes 2 am, we go back to 1 am. Also note there is no “S” in Saving. It is not Savings. I know I use to always say savings, until I found out it is saving with no “S”.
We are not on Standard Time. The end of Day Lights Saving time usually ends on the first Sunday of November in each year. This has been since 2007, the year the dates changed for time change.
Also while you are up and about changing your clocks, change your batteries in your life saving devices, such as smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors (CO), flash lights, etc.

I know that most clocks now are atomic or self adjusting to time changes, but we still should at least set this day aside for changing our batteries in our life saving devices.
Also note, we fall back in fall and spring ahead in spring! We will spring ahead one hour March 12, 2017, about 4 months from now.
