    On what date do you have to change the clock this year for Daylight Saving Time?

    Whether you don’t like it or welcome it, this year Daylight Savings Time will arrive sooner rather than later.

    We are all supposed to advance the clock one hour in the early morning of March 12. More specifically, Daylight Saving Time will start at 2 am, which means that at that time, time will automatically jump to 3 am, depending on the device used, or it will have to be advanced manually.

    Due to the time change, the sun will set one hour later on March 12 than it set on March 11. The sunrise will also come an hour later, which means that the first hours of the day will be darker but, at the same time, the sunset will last longer.

    In New York, for example, twilight will be at 5:58 pm on March 11, and then at 6:59 pm on March 12. Instead, in Kansas City, twilight will be at 7:22 pm after the change. And in Tampa, the sun won’t set until 7:37 pm after Daylight Saving Time begins.

    The days will be longest between then and June 21, the summer solstice and the longest day of the year.

    This year, Daylight Saving Time will last until November 5, when we will turn the clock back one hour again, returning to earlier sunsets and long nights, typically in winter.

    Eighteen states have passed some type of legislation to permanently switch to Daylight Saving Time under certain conditions. Most of them are waiting for congressional approval. Senator Marco Rubio (Republican for Florida) introduced the Sunlight Protection Act in 2021, which seeks to end the two annual changes and make Daylight Saving Time permanent.

    The Bill passed the Senate but the House never passed it during the legislative session.
