Did you know that if you don't set your clocks at the exact right time that Angels will lose their wings, babies will cry and your mother will stub her toe? The humanity!

My late grandmother, God rest her soul, used to set her alarm to get up twice a year to 'spring forward' and to 'fall back'. If you miss the time change by even so much as a minute you run the risk of getting stuck in the past or the future. Can you even imagine, bro? This is exactly why we are urging you to set an alarm for about 01:50am Sunday morning so that when 02:00 AM hits you are up and ready to change your appliance clocks to the correct time.

According to Live Science, On Sunday, March 10, most Americans will set their clocks forward an hour, as daylight saving time (sometimes erroneously called daylight savings time) begins, and most of the United States will "gain" an hour of daylight. These spring and fall clock changes continue a long tradition started by Benjamin Franklin to conserve energy. 

Daylight saving facts

  • Daylight saving was first started to save energy, but it turned out people enjoyed having an extra hour of daylight after work. But not in Arizona, where sunlight only extends the heat-related misery.
  • The Navajo Reservation observes daylight saving time; the Hopi Reservation does not. The Navajo Reservation surrounds the Hopi Reservation, so if on Monday you drive from Flagstaff to Gallup through Tuba City and Ganado, you’ll change time on four occasions.
  • More than 70 countries observe daylight saving time. No one is sure just how much daylight is saved, globally, each year, though physics indicates none.
  • It is daylight saving time, not daylight savings time.

Whatever you do, make sure you get up in the middle of the night and tend to that dim green clock on your microwave. Otherwise you'll end up in the land of the Langoliers (Stephen King Movie) and you and everyone you love will be eaten.

Cheers!
