When does the time change?

Labor Day - the traditional end of summer - was Sept. 3, weeks before the official end of on Sept. 22.

But for many people the "real" switch from the warm days of summer to the cooler days of fall occurs when the time changes.

Daylight Saving Time started on Sunday, March 11, when people turned their clocks ahead one hour to push more daylight into the afternoon. Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, Nov. 4, and most people will move their clocks back an hour before going to bed on Saturday, Nov. 3. 

Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier on Nov. 4 than the day before, leaving more light in the morning.

Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. The current schedule was introduced in 2007 as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

Benjamin Franklin is often credited with the idea of changing clocks during the year, though the attribution is likely overstated. While visiting Paris in 1784, Franklin wrote a letter to a Paris newspaper proposing a tax on those whose windows were closed after sunrise. The letter, meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek, was meant to encourage the use of sunshine instead of candles.
