This Saturday night, Oct. 31, isn’t just Halloween.

It’s also the night to turn your clock back one hour so you will be on time for all of your Sunday, Nov.  1 events.

Daylight Saving Time will officially end at 2 a.m. this Sunday, Nov. 1, but it’s easier to turn your clock back Saturday before going to bed.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 extended Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. starting in 2007. Congress has retained the right to revert to the 1986 law should the Daylight Saving Time change prove unpopular or if energy savings are insignificant.
