Time again, to Spring Forward
The twice a year ritual of clock changing has once again arrived, this time around our task, should we decide to accept it, is to move our clocks ONE HOUR AHEAD before we retire for the night.
Most parts of Canada, like many other parts of the world enter the time continuum of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday morning, leaving more than a few of us to suffer for the lack of an hour of sleep at best, more than a few late for work or missing an appointment for Sunday's calendar of events.
The Good news for all of us and something to mark on the calendar, we get the hour back in the fall, when we move the clock back an hour on the first Sunday of November.
The nature of the time change has in itself become the thing of much review, with many an article of interest to the theme to be found to help you while away that hour of sleep you are about to lose.
