Daylight Savings Time Ends at 2am Motzei Shabbos

By Yehudit Garmaise

    Sunday, Nov. 1, at 2am marks the end of Daylight Savings Time: when darker late afternoons and cozy, early Shabboses begin.

   Although the days will now have several more hours of darkness, some good news is that “falling back” means one extra hour of sleep Motzei Shabbos. Plus, a rare blue full moon is expected that night. 

    Although the United States first instituted Daylight Saving Time during World War I in 1918, some say the idea of Daylight Savings time was originated by U.S. founding father Benjamin Franklin, who thought resetting clocks in the summer months could conserve energy. By moving clocks forward, people could take advantage of the extra daylight in the evening, rather than wasting energy on lighting.
