When Daylight Time ends on Halloween, most may interpret the regained hour as more of a treat (although those who forget to change their clocks and watches might find its a bit of a trick come morning). So don't forget: Overnight we "fall back" an hour. Though most of us keep time by cellphones and other devices that do the switching for us, our bodies and good old fashioned wall-clocks, watches, and kitchen appliance displays will need that bit of nudging to move from 2 a.m. back to 1 a.m. again Sunday morning. This is the third year since the official end date for Daylight Time was moved to the first Sunday in November. Don't forget! That extra hour of sleep might come in handy depending on how hard you party tonight.
