Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend. Here’s What To Do With That Extra Hour.

Time to set those clocks back: Daylight saving time comes to a close at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1. 

Bad news: It’ll likely be dark by the time you're heading out of the office Monday. Good news: We get to indulge in an extra hour of sleep this weekend.

With the end of daylight saving time coinciding with Halloween this year, we have a feeling that many won’t object to being able to get more shut-eye after a late night of partying or sugar consumption.
