Daylight Saving Time Dates
Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in North America on the second Sunday in
March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March,
clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes
3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set
back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local
Not all places in the U.S. observe daylight time. In
particular, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not use it. Indiana adopted its use
beginning in 2006. In Canada, most of Saskatchewan, parts of Quebec, and
Southampton Island in Nunavut do not observe daylight time.
