Daylight savings time 2015 ends now: move your clock backward on November 1 midnight

Daylight savings time 2015 ends now: move your clock backward on November 1 midnight

Daylight savings time 2015 ends now:  move your clock backward on November 1 midnight

Daylight saving time 2015 is coming to an end at midnight on November 1. This means that you will have to move your clocks one hour backward to keep pace with your appointments and other schedules.

Daylight savings time 2015 or spring forward 2015 had begun in March this year. After almost seven months, the daylight savings time is ending now and you are required to move your clock backward once again.

Many people detest this idea of moving the clock backward and forward twice a year. They say that this practice must end forthwith. Nonetheless such demands have fallen on deaf ears till now.

Daylight-Savings-time_0The time demands that you actually move your clock back by one hour and you are literally forced to do so. No, nobody comes to actually force you to move it back, but if you don’t do it, you end up losing a lot as everywhere you are going, you will get the schedules wrong, miss the train, bus, tube and everything else.

Despite opposition it has remained in place. And till the idea is not officially done away with even the most staunch opponents too will not be able to miss the clock being moved back as without it they cannot actually live. To be true even if they have to oppose the daylight savings time in different forums and courts they will have to be on time and for that they have to keep their watches and clocks on time.

Many people do it before going to bed so they don’t mess up with their schedule. If you have to be on dot when daylight time ends on November 1 you will have to move the clock back by one hour. Daylight savings time is ending at 2 AM and the questions about its any perceived benefits have begun once again. Our country is among the most developed nation of the whole world. But instead of scrapping this dated idea, the government has continued with this practice in post-modern world. In a third world country in sub Saharan Africa, this idea may get some people to agree with its usefulness but certainly not in America. Daylight saving time (DST) is a decades-old tradition, but many suspect that it “does nothing more than create a nation of groggy and confused citizens,” says Deanna Gillen at PolicyMic. Sometimes ago there was an “End Daylight Saving Time” petition on the internet by some disgruntled Americans who wanted to end this nuisance. But apparently this was not high on people’s minds so it didn’t get enough backers to get White House act on the issue.
