Exclamation Don't forget to "Fall Back"

...in fall, clocks fall back from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.

In the U.S., restaurants and bars have various closing policies. In many states, liquor cannot be served after 2:00 a.m. But at 2:00 a.m. in the fall, the time switches back one hour. So, can they serve alcohol for that additional hour in October?

The official answer is that the bars do not close at 2:00 a.m., but actually at 1:59 a.m. So, they are already closed when the time changes from Daylight Saving Time into Standard Time. In practice, however, many establishments stay open an extra hour in the fall.

In the U.S., 2:00 a.m. was originally chosen as the changeover time because it was practical and minimized disruption. Most people were at home and this was the time when the fewest trains were running. It is late enough to minimally affect bars and restaurants, and it prevents the day from switching to yesterday, which would be confusing. It is early enough that the entire continental U.S. switches by daybreak, and the changeover occurs before most early shift workers and early churchgoers (particularly on Easter) are affected.

What I want to know is how many of our MBBers that live in areas
where the time change occurs....actually stay up or get up at
2:00 AM to change their clocks? I tried it once and fell asleep
waiting in the chair to change all the clocks in my house..

Or, do you do what I do and change them before you go to bed
the night before?

I normally don't turn them back until I wake up an hour earlier and look at the cable clock and remember to go around the house and change them.

I love getting an extra hour of sleep instead of in spring and having to spring forward an hour.
