It’s that time of year again. This weekend, you’ll sacrifice an hour of sleep in exchange for a few months of extra daylight.
Set your clocks ahead one hour tonight because Daylight Saving Time officially starts at 2 a.m. on Sunday. It ends the first Sunday in November.
Daylight Savings Time is actually good for business:
Shifting daylight one hour later means more light in the late spring and early fall for after-school and after-work leisure activities, and that means more time for gassing up, driving to the ballpark, and hitting the driving range. Paper-plates manufacturers, lighter-fluid makers, plant nurseries, and service stations anticipated a $4 billion windfall from the extended daylight hours.
