More Sunshine for the Sunshine State? Florida Wants Year-Round Daylight Saving Time

Remember to set your clocks an hour forward when you go to bed Saturday night

This will occur at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11.

Daylight saving time - not daylight "savings" time as it's commonly called - begins Sunday, which means that many US residents will need to spring forward, setting clocks ahead by one hour. The National Fire Protection Association suggests replacing smoke alarms every 10 years.

Yes, it's that time of year again, but are you ready?

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Daylight saving time is in effect from the second Sunday of March until the first Sunday of November.

But not every state in the USA observes daylight saving time, including Hawaii and most of Arizona. It was first seriously advocated by William Willet, a British builder, in his pamphlet "Waste of Daylight" in 1907.

In 2007, Congress passed a law starting Daylight Saving Time three weeks earlier and ending it one week later. More research is needed to confirm these preliminary findings, and it's unclear whether the time change affects women who are trying to conceive naturally. However, certain Native American reservations in Arizona still participate.

Arizona, Hawaii, and the territories like Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and American Samoa do not use DST.

But some people question the benefits, and a handful of places in the USA don't observe daylight saving time.
