Fall Back: Day Light Saving Time Ends – It’s that time of year again to set our clocks back an hour.
Fall Back: Day Light Saving Time Ends
We Fall Back One Hour! Sunday, November 1, 2020, is the official time change, so before you go to bed on Saturday, October 31, 2020, be sure to set your clocks back one hour. I know most of us now have phones, computers, etc. that auto adjusts 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.
This is done the first Sunday in November of each year, see future dates below.
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”.Fall Back! Day Lights Saving Time Ends!

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 8, 2020.Change your clock, change your batteries! Click To Tweet
I like this church sign that says day light savings changes time, but Jesus changes lives. Check it out!

Time Change and Your Health
How switching the clocks can affect your health – Even though the energy savings associated with DST can be significant, some suggest those savings come at the expense of human health.
Some states or even cities are doing away with time change. Check with your local state or city if you are one of them.
