Falling back for the last time
By: Jayden Abaa-Ofoeme
With November officially rolling in, people are beginning to turn their clocks back for daylight saving time. For those that don’t know, daylight saving time is a time of the year where everyone sets their clocks back by one hour. It started on April 24, 1960. Daylight saving time lasts for two seasons (Fall and Winter) before we “Spring Forward” on Sunday, March 12, 2023.
This is the last time we change the clocks for daylight savings time. The time will remain the same, and next year come Fall, there will be no change. The U.S senate approved and passed on March 15, 2022, the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021, a bill which makes daylight savings time permanent. The bill will take effect on November 2, 2023, “making the daylight saving time the new, permanent standard time.”
