Daylight Savings Ends - Fall Back

Sunday, November 7, 2021

Ready to FALL BACK? Daylight Savings ends at 2 AM November 7, 2021, and we get an extra hour of sleep. Be sure to set your clocks back one hour before bed tonight!

The majority of Americans want to stop changing the clocks twice a year, moving in and out of Daylight Saving Time. As of 2021, at least 33 states have introduced legislation addressing DST. Here’s the history and the latest news on the movement to “lock the clock.”

Today, Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November when we return to standard time.  In March, we “spring” forward and set clocks forward one hour. In November, we “fall” back and set clocks back one hour. See our Daylight Savings page for this year’s dates.

Many Americans (as well as Europeans and people around the world) say changing the clocks is an antiquated practice from wartime which has more negatives than positives. Specifically, seven in 10 Americans do not want to switch clocks twice a year, according an AP-NORC poll from late 2019. However, not everyone agrees on whether the clocks should stay on standard time year-round or stay on daylight saving time all year round. 

Interestingly, while most senators propose legislation making daylight saving time permanent, most Americans (71%) take a position that seems in opposition to daylight saving all the time.

  • 40% yearn for standard time all year around
  • 31% of Americans wanted to move to daylight saving time all year around
  • 28% want to keep switching back and forth

When the same poll was done in 2015, 48% liked the current system of switching back and forth (versus 28%). Apparently, Americans feel more and more that the concept is becoming more outdated and it’s less and less necessary to switch back and forth. This may be due to computer revolution and a host of other modern-day reasons.

Back in 2015, the vote between the two permanent options (i.e., full-time daylight saving or standard time) was evenly split; 23% of Americans preferred one or the other. So, you could argue that going for daylight saving time all year-round is gaining in popularity.

Bottom-line: Americans just don’t want to change their clocks, even if we can’t agree on which way to go!
