Daylight Savings Sunday Nov 6
It's time to officially say goodbye to the summer as Daylight Saving Time 2016 ends in the United States of America. Following Halloween, U.S. citizens will have to "fall back" and set their clocks one hour back on Sunday, November 6 at 2AM. However, if you are traveling or living outside of the U.S. and Canada and that country observes daylight savings time, your time to change your clock might be sooner or later. Why is it different for the U.S.? The Energy Policy Act of 2005 that was passed by U.S. Congress and signed by President George W. Bush, attempted to combat growing energy problems, provide tax incentives and loan guarantees for energy production of various types. The bill also amended the Uniform Time Act on 1966 that changed the start and end dates of daylight savings time starting in 2007. Clocks were to be set ahead on the second Sunday of March, instead of the first Sunday of April and clocks were to be set back one hour on the first Sunday of November instead of the last Sunday of October.
