Daylight Savings Time or DST is on the Monday after the time adjustment always a nightmare. Many clocks need to be adjusted and often they are adjusted in the wrong direction.

However for the United States daylight savings time starts in the early morning of 6 November and will go from 2:00 am back to 1:00 am..
Why Daylight Savings Time
Daylight savings time – DST – was introduced in the early years of the last century to preserve energy and in our computerized world of today, this only makes even more sense. 2 hours in a year on billions of light bulbs makes the difference. Also road safety is an important element for DST as evening traffic around the globe commences in bright daylight rather then in dusk.
This shows that the whole world community benefits from daylight savings time - DST.
How To Remember Daylight Savings Time Adjustment
Thousands of people around the globe struggle every year with remembering if the clock needs to go forward or backward.
The easiest way to remember is that you want the “shortest summer”. Meaning that in spring the time goes forward and in fall the clock goes backward. Resulting in a summer which is two hours shorter.
