In the US, Daylight Saving Time will start on March 10, 2024.

Read Time:1 Minute, 34 Second

In the United States, Daylight Saving Time is scheduled to begin on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at two in the morning. As spring approaches, clocks will advance by one hour to signal the beginning of longer daylight hours.

For example, in New Jersey, the sun will set on March 9 at approximately 6 p.m. After the time change, March 10 sunset is at 7 p.m. But instead of rising at 6:18 a.m. on March 9, sunrise will occur at 7:16 a.m., an hour later.

Every year on the second Sunday in March, Daylight Savings Time—erroneously called Daylight Savings Time by some—begins. It concludes on the first Sunday in November. Spring officially arrives this year on March 19 at 11:06 p.m.

Furthermore, on November 3, 2024, at two in the morning, Daylight Saving Time will come to an end, and clocks will be advanced by one hour.

The U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, and the majority of Arizona and Hawaii are among the states that do not observe Daylight Saving Time. Although establishment of permanent Daylight Saving Time would require federal authorization, certain states have contemplated, or are considering, enacting laws to that effect.

The German Empire was the first to implement Daylight Saving Time in 1916, while the concept itself dates back to World War I. A similar idea is credited to Benjamin Franklin, who made the proposal in 1784 while he was in Paris.

Daylight Saving Time was initially implemented in the US in 1918 as a fuel-saving measure, and it was then reinstated during World War II. Less than a year after President Nixon signed a bill making Daylight Saving Time permanent in 1973, it was repealed. At the federal and state levels, there are still initiatives underway to implement Daylight Saving Time throughout the entire year.
