When does daylight savings time 2015 ends: All details that you need to know before fall back time change 

Daylight saving time is all set to end at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 1. Many people forget to move their clocks back and end up getting early in the morning and reaching their offices much more early than they should have done. Some people take their kids to schools an hour in advance due to the fact that they forgot to move their clocks back.

Though in many houses this is done by kids who are more than happy to do it, many other people tend to forget the occasion and end up cursing themselves next morning.

So the most advisable thing for you to do to remain on the safer side is to move your clocks back an hour before you go to bed Saturday night Oct. 31. From November 1 till early March we will have shorter days and, on Nov. 1, sunset will be around 5:08 p.m. CST.

Daylight-Savings-time_0The tradition of daylight saving time began around a hundred years. As the world was energy deficient at that time, officials in many countries caught hold of the idea and implemented it. While it was really useful those days and till late fifties, this is no longer the case now as Western nations, particularly the United States are no longer facing any energy issue.

It was Benjamin Franklin who game the idea of Daylight Saving time. In his well received essay “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” he said that people could save candles by getting up earlier and making better use of available light. Then, in 1907, Englishman William Willett championed the idea, which quickly spread. It was brought to America by Robert Garland, a businessman from Pittsburgh who first came upon the idea in the U.K.

Nonetheless in the United States, it wasn’t until Aug. 8, 2005 that we got our current timetable for Daylight Saving Time. President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act on that day, setting the official end time for DST as the first Sunday in November. From 1986-2006, Daylight Saving Time began on the first Sunday in April and ended on the last Sunday in October.
