Daylight Saving Time returns this weekend

Posted February 28, 2015
Updated March 8

The dark days of winter are almost over.

Ready for spring? The clock-makers are! Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 13 at 2 a.m.

In the annual ritual, most of the United States (and 70 countries around the world) lose an hour of sleep to gain a hour of daylight in the evening.

The switch always occurs on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November, which means it's back to Standard Time on Nov. 6.

    So we're only on "standard time" for 4 of the 12 months. Doesn't that mean that standard isn't really that standard anymore?
