This weekend, it will finally be time for the annual ritual that ends daylight-saving time: Before going to bed on Saturday night, set your clocks back an hour.

At 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1, the country will revert to Eastern Standard Time.

The federal government first legislated daylight saving times into existence during World War I, again during World War II and it has been in effect ever since.
