Daylight Davings Time Takes Effect For US And Canada (Mostly)

It's the second Sunday of March. And if you don't know, Daylight Savings Time takes effect for most of the US and Canada. That means last night at 2AM clocks went forward an hour. For most of us, that meant losing an hour of sleep or getting up an hour later. For some, it meant ending up an hour later at events. 

But this wasn't the case for everyone. Arizona and some US counties, as well as parts of Canada, do not observe Daylight Savings Time. While most of Europe has it, it doesn't take effect until the last Sunday of March. For countries south of the Equator, it's the opposite. Parts of Australia and New Zeeland will be getting *off* DST in April.

But don't grumble too much. In October, Daylight Savings Time ends, so we'll get the hour of sleep back.

  1. Yeah ... for 3 weeks the chaos on event-planing at SL-time, while you be in Europe (and the Summer-Time waits until the end of the month).
